HOW WE SUPPORT MILITARY-CONNECTED STUDENTS
Welcome to the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District!
Fairbanks North Star Borough School District (FNSBSD) is a military-friendly school district. We want to help make your transition in our schools as smooth as possible and provide you up-to-date information while you are here!
With more than 11,800 students and 34 campuses in the district, we educate over 3,400 military-connected students, which is 29% of the total student population (current information as of 04-02-21).
The district has three elementary schools (Anderson, Arctic Light, Crawford) and one junior/senior high school (Ben Eielson) on base and post.
The district manages three Department of Defense Education Activity grants:
The district supports the Child and Youth Behavioral Military & Family Counseling program, funded by the Department of Defense, where seven counselors serve six elementary schools, one junior/senior high school, one middle school and two high schools for students, families and staff.
We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to our military families, especially our youngest heroes-your children, our students!

Pay Fees and Fines Online With TouchBase!
TouchBase is the District’s new online payment portal for student fines and fees. InTouch Receipting and TouchBase Online Payments are part of a cutting edge software package the district has implemented to streamline the management, reporting, and accountability of your student’s financial record, as well as making it easy on our customers – the parents – to pay student fines and fees, or purchasing items - all in one portal. As a parent, this new application allows you to access your students’ account online using a computer, via your favorite mobile device, or in person, at any one of our school locations.
As a parent/customer, you’ll be able to:
- Pay for fines and/or fees online
- View/print/save your student/customer ledger
- View/print/save your receipts
- Purchase items online
The online payments application – TouchBase – is accessible through PowerSchool. Sign into PowerSchool. For parents with multiple students in the district, you’ll be able to see all of your students with your one username and password. Once you’ve selected your student, the shopping experience will be specific to that student.
March is Music in Our Schools Month! Students are getting an early start and have performances scheduled starting at the end of February. Below is a list of performances planned around the district to celebrate music education.
FNSBSD is pleased to provide a new and interactive way to provide feedback on the district’s proposed budget. You can now use a budget simulation tool called Balancing Act to adjust the district’s revenue and spending to balance the budget.
We continue to face tough budget realities moving into next school year and school closure has again come forward as a way to sustainably reduce costs. The school board is considering the closure of two schools. District administration has put forward two schools recommended for closure and two additional schools for consideration.
