The Fairbanks North Star Borough School District is excited to announce that a pilot Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program will be implemented at Tanana Middle School during the 2015-2016 school year. Beginning November 1, 2015, students may bring their personal electronic devices – including laptops, iPads, Android Tablets, smart phones, etc. – with them to school. With classroom teacher approval, students may use their own devices to access the internet and collaborate with other students. This will enable students to use a combination of district technology and their own to facilitate the learning. By allowing students to use their own technology on campus we are hoping to increase the access all students have to the technology they need to be engaging and productive learners.
The school district will be holding summer school at Effie Kokrine Charter School. There are several options for students to register for classes: Online enrichment; online diagnostic; and teacher-led, credit-recovery classes for English and math courses. All classes are $185 each and are non refundable. Classes begin June 1. All online classes must be finished by July 16. Teacher-led, credit-recovery classes finish June 28. See your school counselor for more information and a registration form.
The Fairbanks North Star Borough School District is adding text alerts to its available communication channels with parents and guardians. The same communication management system that sends out the district’s automated phone calls and emails has a texting function that will be activated April 18.
