LKSD seeks community feedback to steer efforts toward Student Achievement

by LKSD Staff

The Lower Kuskokwim School District is seeking feedback from the community to increase student achievement.

In 2016, the LKSD Board of Education identified four district-wide goals that are being used to steer all LKSD efforts and planning over the course of the next two years. These goals, or Key Measures, include:

•Graduation Rate: The four-year graduation rate for LKSD students will reach 75%.

•Achievement: 70% of LKSD students will meet or exceed growth targets on MAP testing.

•Yugtun/Cugtun Fluency: 50% of 6th grade students in LKSD will score within proficiency level 3 or higher on the Yugtun/Cugtun Proficiency.

•Attendance: The LKSD attendance rate will increase to 95% for grades K-8, and 91% for students in grades 9-12.

LKSD is committed to meeting these goals by the end of the 2018-2019 school year. In order to do so, they are seeking feedback from community members through form of an online survey.

The survey is available at and will be open until April 7, 2017. The LKSD would like to thank the community in advance for contributing their thoughts and feedback in order to help “move the needle” of student achievement forward.
