The annual BP Teachers of Excellence program recognizes educators from throughout Alaska for their dedication to teaching and inspiring students.
Outstanding public education has been a longstanding value in our community. This must continue. The time is now for everyone to come together, with one voice, to send the message to Juneau on the need to properly fund education, as the founders of our state constitution so wisely intended.
- Superintendent Pete Lewis

At the April 1, 2014 Fairbanks North Star Borough Board of Education meeting, the board passed a resolution supporting the stationing of the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter at Eielson Air Force Base.
School operations on Eielson Air Force Base have been an integral part of the district since we assumed responsibility of base schools in 1975, and we currently operate three schools on base. We're committed to meeting the educational needs of Eielson Air Force Base families, now, and in the future.
No other region in the country can offer the United States Air Force as strategic, cost effective and welcoming alternative for stationing the F-35 Lighting II aircraft. The Fairbanks School District joins the Fairbanks North Star Borough Assembly and the Greater Fairbanks Chamber of Commerce in supporting the stationing of the aircraft at Eielson Air Force Base.
