Community Survey - Deadline, April 1st
Fairbanks North Star Borough School Board and School District are embarking upon the development of a long-term strategic plan for the district. This strategic planning initiative will provide the district with a road map and clearly defined priorities to help ensure district students receive the best education possible.
A key ingredient to this process is community feedback. Throughout the month of March, the school board will collect input via an online community survey. This survey is designed with strategic planning in mind and your perspective will inform the decision making greatly.
Please take 10-15 minutes to complete the survey – your input matters to the overall success. survey.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_bQOqQRy1YFty50h
