KCS Report Card

February 20, 2023

Dear Parent(s) and Guardian(s):

Recently the Alaska Department of Education & Early Development (DEED) released the 2020-2021 Report Cards to the Public for each school district and school in Alaska. The continuing impact of COVID-19 on the operation of Alaska’s public school buildings throughout the 2020-2021 school year has had a substantial effect on the state’s accountability system and Alaska Report Card to the Public. As a result, the Accountability waiver that was approved on June 9, 2021, limits the data that are available on the Report Card for the 2020-2021 school year. The Reporting Plan for the 2020-2021 Alaska School, District, and State Report Cards outlines the data that will be reported publicly on the website and the data that will likely be accompanied by additional documentation.

To view a 2020-2021 school or district report card to the public, go to https://education.alaska.gov/compass/report-card. Once there, you can select which school or district report card to the public you wish to view. This 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. If you are unable to access the Report Card to the Public online, please contact your student’s school.

We know that the report card to the public is just one of many ways you will engage with us at Ketchikan Charter 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 Ketchikan Charter School, the report card to the public shows us doing well, with an attendance rate of 81.97%. We had 44% of our 3-8 grades score approaching proficient or higher in Math. We also had 60% of our 3-8 grades score approaching proficient or higher in ELA. All of this would be impossible to do without the support of our families. We thank you for choosing KCS for your child’s education.

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 are performing as a whole. Nothing is more important to administrators and teachers at Ketchikan Charter than ensuring that students are ready for the next step in their academic careers.

We look forward to partnering with you.

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 Shane.Scamahorn@K21schools.org or Kayla.Livingston@k21schools.org.

We look forward to seeing you at Parent/Teacher Conferences on March 8 and 9, 2023.
