Even though many of Alaska’s students are getting a good education, historically Alaska has some of the largest achievement gaps in the country. Compared to other states in America, Alaska ranks at or near the bottom in reading and math scores. This document is a call to action. Thousands of Alaskans have stepped up to answer this call and have demonstrated through Alaska’s Education Challenge that they are unwilling to accept their state’s current results. Parents, students, educators, policymakers, tribal leaders, partner organizations, and local school boards have worked together to create a shared plan for improving Alaska’s system of public education. This document outlines the three primary components of that plan: (1) Public Commitments–An invitation to all Alaskans to support a thriving and successful public education system; (2) Positive Trajectories–Measurable targets that will hold Alaskans accountable to their students; and (3) Prioritized Strategies–A menu of options for districts, schools, and families to drive improvement.
