 Dear Parent(s) and Guardian(s):

Recently the Alaska Department of Education & Early Development (DEED) released the 2017-2018 Report Cards to the Public for each school district and school in Alaska. This new user-friendly website aims to provide families with clear, common information about all public schools and districts in our State. These report cards to the public contain data and information about academics, school environment, teacher quality, and more.

 The 2017-2018 school and district report cards to the public are found below this letter. These reports can also be on the Alaska Department of Education at  Click on Report Card to the Public and chose the school you would like to view.   

We know that the report card to the public is just one of many ways you engage with us at Haines School. We look forward to sharing our school’s successes with you, and working together to make our school better every day. In particular, we are proud that at Haines School the report card to the public shows 100% of our teachers are experienced, our two-year trend data in English Language Arts shows an improvement over all of 8%, and in math we show an overall improvement of 5%.


We hope you will closely follow your student’s academic progress and work with his or her teacher(s) to help ensure academic success. Working together as a team, we can improve not only how well our students are performing individually, but how our school and district is performing as a whole. There is nothing more important to administrators and teachers at Haines Schools than ensuring that students are ready for the next step in their academic career.


If you have any questions or concerns regarding our school or district report card to the public, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 766-6700.


Sincerely Your Admin Team,

Roy Getchell, Rene Martin, Kimberly Sundberg
