It is summertime in the Kodiak Island Borough School District, and while the students are enjoying and exploring the beauty of their island home, the district’s faculty, staff and paraprofessionals already are hard at work preparing for the next school year at the Summer Institute.
How do Kodiak Island Borough School District faculty, staff and students view their school climate? How connected do these students feel to adults and peers in their school community?

The final class project of Kristie Wall’s teaching career was one of which to be incredibly proud. The long-time Main Elementary School teacher guided her fourth-grade students through a culturally-infused project that focused on the many Native Alaskan cultures that can be found throughout the state.
Kodiak Island has a heritage and history rich with traditions from the many cultures that have shaped its existence. From the Alutiiq people to Russian settlers to the more recent Filipino immigrant community, all of these cultures have left an indelible impression on what it means to be Kodiakan.
Last month, artist Evon Zerbetz visited Kodiak Island Borough School District, and the Main Elementary School family rolled out the red carpet for the Ketchikan-based artist, relief printmaker and book illustrator. Zerbetz was on-island as part of KIBSD’s “Artist in Schools” program for the 2016-2017 school year.

Beginning Tuesday, March 28, Kodiak Island Borough School District students in grades 3-10 will take the state of Alaska’s new summative assessment — the Performance Evaluation for Alaska’s Schools, or PEAKS.
Earlier this school year, the bridge connecting Main Elementary School to Powell Avenue was closed down for repairs. According to Rich Walker, operations and special projects manager for Kodiak Island Borough District, deterioration and rust damage to the the bridge’s expansion plate and rebar components made it structurally unsound and caused the concrete bridge to begin to crumble and fall apart.
School counselors play a major role in the lives of Kodiak Island Borough School District Students. From teaching students how to respect one another and their teachers at the elementary school level to bullying prevention in middle school to college and career counseling in high school, KIBSD school counselors truly help guide KIBSD students through their ever-changing worlds.
Coming together to connect, to inspire and to learn.
