Welcoming New Board Members

Congratulations to your newly elected board members, it is an exciting time for boards as these new members join your team. Providing new board members with the information they need to perform effectively is the next critical step in developing a strong board.

 New AASB Regional Multi-Site Board Trainings Tested
During the month of October AASB conducted the first-ever series of regional board training sessions.

The training sessions, facilitated by John Sedor, Timi Tullis and Lon Garrison, covered a variety of topics relevant to school board work, including running meetings, the open meetings act, working with the public, and board roles and responsibilities.
Southeast board members attend a regional training session at Prince of Wales Vocational and Technical Education Center
The Southeast session was attended by four regional school districts. Twenty board members from Craig, Southeast Island, Hydaburg, and Klawock gathered at the Prince of Wales Vocational and Technical Education Center in Klawock for a full day of training.

The Fairbanks regional training session included participants from five school districts: Delta Greely, Denali, Tanana, Fairbanks, and Nenana.

By taking a regional approach to board training, AASB hopes to make professional development more efficient and affordable for school boards. The new service is being tested to determine if it is a valuable resource for districts.

For more information about Regional Multi-Site Board Trainings contact Timi Tullis .

Q: When AASB produces updates on board policy who adds these to our board policy, which is online?

Spotlight: Family Engagement
Articles in this section are excerpted from the AASB STEPS Alaska Promise Neighborhood Newsletter that focuses on the work in progress among the Supporting Transitions and Educational Promise Southeast Alaska (STEPS Alaska) grant regional partners, who are striving to improve outcomes for Southeast Alaska’s youth.
Why is family engagement important?
According to the 2019 Student Climate and Connectedness Survey, family engagement is highly correlated to PEAKS reading scores.

For STEPS students grades 6-12, having "lots of parents come to events at my school" is the best indicator for PEAKS reading achievement, second only to PEAKS mathematics achievement.
It is more correlated to PEAKS reading scores than factors such as "being prepared for tests" or "this schools is badly affected by crime and violence."
Juneau School District Learns About Family Engagement at Harvard Institute

 This past summer, a team of eight Juneau School District employees had the opportunity to attend the Harvard Graduate School of Education’s Family Engagement in Education Institute alongside partners from AASB.
Our cohort of principals, district office administrators, counselors and family engagement specialist learned about cutting-edge family engagement research and strategies among hundreds of others from around the country and around the world.

Focus Groups

 The Sitka School District recently conducted several focus groups surrounding their Wooch.een preschool initiative. Wooch.een Yei Jigaxtoonei, or the We are Working Together Preschool Program, is a joint project between the Sitka School District, Sitka Tribe, and Tlingit & Haida Head Start. This program is a great model of community collaboration to create a culturally-responsive kindergarten readiness curriculum for low-income students.

8 families were chosen to provide feedback regarding Wooch.een. Learn more about their findings.

Baranof Elementary School Busmobile

 The wheels on the bus go…wherever there are five-year olds ready for kindergarten! Baranof Elementary School in Sitka had a plan for enrolling pre-school children in kindergarten. The challenge was identifying and enrolling children who are not in formal preschool.

Last April, Principal Jill Lecrone took to the streets with a "busmobile" to bring registration to neighborhoods and family-friendly locations. The goal was to encourage enrollment, answer questions about kindergarten, and get a timely and accurate enrollment figure.

School Law
“Are we on the record? Legal Issues with Recordings in School.”
Clinton Campion of Sedor, Wendlandt, Evans & Filippi, LLC

Part two of a series: Technology and the Law

As a trial attorney, I pay close attention when a judge announces, “we are on the record” because everything I say is being recorded. Several years ago, the Alaska Court System installed a new recording system in courtrooms across the State. The system activates a blue light when recording, so everyone knows “we are on the record.”
Clinton Campion
There is, however, no “blue light” in our schools. Teachers, students, and staff may be recorded without their knowledge or consent. Today’s smartphones have the capacity to audio and video record every interaction between students and staff.

Spirit of Youth invites school districts to
join their efforts as champions for Alaska’s youth
Spirit of Youth knows that there are good things happening in our state and young people are often at the heart of them.

The Fairbanks North Star Borough School District requested an analysis of the accuracy of statewide student testing that produced lower than expected results.
The school board’s unanimous resolution , which was forwarded to the Association of Alaska School Boards, seeks a thorough analysis by the state to ensure an “accurate and authentic assessment of student learning.”

The Association of Alaska School Boards has more than 330 board members who assist school boards across the state. The Fairbanks resolution is expected to be considered by the association at its fall conference in November.

‘Going old school’: Anchorage school lunches are getting a makeover
Tegan Hanlon, Anchorage Daily News
The Anchorage School District is moving away from prepackaged TV-dinner-style lunches served in throw-away plastic trays in an effort launched this year to reduce trash and increase the appeal of student meals.

Instead, cafeteria workers will scoop food directly onto students’ reusable trays as they move through the lunch line, said Andy Mergens, the district’s senior director of student nutrition.

It’s a big transition for a decades-old system, Mergens said. He likened it to “going old school.”
“It’s fresher, it’s more appealing, it tastes better,” he said. “The other thing is, it’s far less waste.”
