Our Mission: It is the mission of the Haines Borough School District to graduate life-long learners with the confidence, skills, and knowledge to realize their aspirations and contribute to a changing world.

Our Vision:  We envision Haines Borough School District students who engage in their learning, participate in their community, reach high levels of achievement, and graduate prepared for their futures. Our Guiding Principles :     
  • We believe in the value of the individual. Every student is unique, and is treated with respect and dignity.     
  • We believe high standards and expectations are essential for student success. A rigorous curriculum challenges students.
  • We believe each student can learn and be successful. Differentiated learning opportunities are integral to all instruction.
  • We believe in the education of the whole child and in providing a diverse learning environment. 
  • We believe in the value of community, and celebrate the diversity among us. Education is the responsibility of the student, family, school and community.
  • We believe learning is a lifelong process. Education requires honest communication, assessment and continuous improvement.
  •  We believe a healthy school environment is essential for the success of our students. Students thrive in a learning environment that is healthy, safe, engaging and purposeful.

2019 State Budget Information

18 days ago

The current FY 20 proposed budget reflects a reduction of $665,000 from the Department of Education and Early Development's contribution through the Base Student Allocation.  Additionally, two initially approved capital improvement projects, replacement of the high school/gym roof and major upgrades to the locker rooms, were eliminated.  Increases to indirect costs like a reduction of the local funding cap, elimination of the school bond debt reimbursement program, elimination of several early learning initiatives, and increased costs due to the proposed elimination of the Alaska Marine Highway need to also be considered when evaluating the overall impact to the Haines Borough School District.
