Dear HBSD Families,
The Haines Borough School District recently adopted a strategic plan that is being implemented this year. These are the long-term goals that our district has to make it an even better place for our students. A summary includes things like:
·Maximizing the academic performance for all of our learners while also encouraging their well-being;
·Keeping our high quality team of educators in Haines and at our school;
·Increasing opportunities for parent and community involvement;
·Effectively communicating with our parents and community members;
·Graduating all of our students on time and with a plan for their future after high school; and
·Ensuring that all of our graduates possess “Alaska Ready” skills like: cold water safety, avalanche awareness, hunter’s safety, and CPR.
I know that much of the communication home during the last month has been operational in nature, specifically in regard to COVID-19. Rest assured that while health and safety is and has always been our #1 priority, the vast majority of our time and efforts are the continuous improvement of our school through the goals identified in our strategic plan. I look forward to updating you on our progress as we work together for the children of Haines.
Yours in Education,
