        Knik Elementary Parents,

        As a requirement of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, states and school districts must issue annual report cards to parents. The purpose of the report card is to provide parents with information about the district and their child’s school in regards to teacher qualifications, academic achievement, and school/district accountability.

         




           

          You can view the 2013-2014 schools report card by visiting your school’s webpage at   

          http://matsuk12.us/cms/lib/AK01000953/Centricity/Domain/4529/KNE_REPORTCARD.pdf

           

         


        YOU'RE INVITED...
         
        to participate on our school improvement team.  Our team meets regularly throughout the year to create and review our Title I plan and our School Improvement Plan.  We would love to have more parents involved with this team.
