The Kodiak Island Borough School District Board of Education membership consists of five community members, one Coast Guard appointed representative, and one student representative who volunteer their time to lead our district.
The focus of the Board of Education is to ensure that all students in the Kodiak Island Borough School District receive the best education possible. The Board also ensures that the District operates in a fiscally responsible manner.
We invite you to attend our regular Board meetings, which are generally held at 7 p.m. on the third Monday of each month in the District Services Conference Room F140 in the old high school wing, unless otherwise noted on this page.

Today, more than ever before, there is a growing need for mental health services for children and youth. According the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, one in five children and adolescents experience a mental health problem while in school, including stress, anxiety, bullying, family problems, depression, a learning disability, and alcohol and substance abuse. Middle and high school youth also face more serious mental health problems, such as self-injurious behaviors and suicide, and instances of these are on the rise.
Over the last few years, the Kodiak Island Borough School District has made major investments in classroom technology, including various Apple laptop computers and iPad mobile devices.
