The mission of the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District is to provide an excellent and equitable education in a safe, supportive environment so all students can become productive members of a diverse and changing society.
Any child who will be 5 years old on or before September 1 preceding the beginning of the school year is eligible to attend kindergarten. Children must be 6 years old on or before September 1 to attend first grade. New students need to enroll at the school they will be attending. A copy of the child's birth certificate is required for each pupil entering kindergarten or first grade. All new students must submit proof of immunization before being admitted into school.
EQUAL EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY
It is the policy of the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District to provide a free appropriate public education, for all children to achieve maximum intellectual growth and development without discrimination due to race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability, marital status, pregnancy, sexual orientation, or any other basis of discrimination prohibited by local, state, or federal law, except where a bona fide requirement may lawfully disqualify an individual.
The Fairbanks school system is committed to providing and maintaining a learning and working environment in which racial, ethnic, cultural, and religious differences are recognized and valued.
Student learning is at the center of everything we do. High achievement evolves from high expectations and educational opportunities. Quality education requires highly motivated, skilled, supportive teachers, administrators, and support staff. Active partnerships with the family and community support successful student learning. Respect for the diversity and dignity of individuals and groups is essential.
