Facilities Capital Repairs, Energy Conservation, and School Security Plan

We are putting forward a plan to repair the heating systems in the School District, put in place energy conservation systems, and upgrade security/safety in all four ANWSD schools.

Improved efficiencies in energy usage in all four schools will result in improved learning conditions and comfort as well as guaranteed energy savings of $212,000 annually.

The $7.6 million dollar plan requires the support of voters through a bond vote on March 6, 2018.

INTRA-SCHOOL CHOICE  (elementary grades)

Recently, the ANWSD Board adopted a policy that would allow a fixed number of students to choose to attend an elementary school other than their own within the School District boundaries. The new policy is attached, and it is strongly recommended that parents read the policy before acting on a request.  Click here for more information.
