The Kodiak Island Borough School District is dedicated to providing quality education to all students in rural schools throughout Kodiak.
We currently serve five K-12 rural schools in our district; Akhiok, Chiniak, Old Harbor, Ouzinkie, and Port Lions.
The District is taking a proactive approach in preparing for the possibility of a mandated school closure in the future, including the delivery of instruction through a distance model. In order to allow staff time to fully prepare for this possibility, KIBSD Spring Break will be extended for one week for all schools in the District, through March 27th.
For the past several weeks, our school district, as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, and state and local health agencies have been closely monitoring the impact and spread of the Coronavirus and its related illness, COVID-19.
The Kodiak Island Borough School District’s Reading English & Alutiiq Development (READ) Project seeks to improve English Language Arts academic performance across its five rural schools (Akhiok, Chiniak, Old Harbor, Ouzinkie, and Port Lions) serving approximately 137 Pre-K-12th grade students and 22 staff each year.
This year, 4th-7th grade students from Old Harbor School fundraised and received donations to go on a class swim trip to Kodiak. Everyone had multiple opportunities to learn and have fun, including: horseback riding, a farm tour, visiting the Baronof museum, Fish and Wildlife Center, and getting a tour of the Kodiak College. This trip is one that students will remember for the rest of their lives.
After winning the Alutiiq Cultural Champion Ribbon at the Rural Schools Regional Science Fair, fourth-grade student S. Simeonoff of Akhiok attended the Alaska State Science and Engineering Fair in Anchorage. Simeonoff’s Alutiiq Halibut Hook Project placed second in his category at the fair and received the Alaska Fly Fishers Annual Award of Merit.
Until recently, Larsen Bay School had one small welding booth that could only accommodate one student at a time. As the number of welders at the school increased, students had to do what village folks do- they got a little creative.
