          • Butte Bandits Climbing to Excellence!


            Mat-Su Virtual School

            Butte Elementary is using the Mat-Su Virtual School in all of the classrooms as the "core of the core."  This means, MSVS is the starting point for instruction this year.  There is still in person teaching taking place, instructino from GoMath, Journeys, Lexia, MobyMax, and othe teacher materials.  The idea is that we start with MSVS so that we can have the capability to "pivot" when we have the need for Remote Learning due to a positive COVID-19 case, or a student needing to be home due to symptoms.

            Our expectation is that when MSVS is taught in the classroom, it will take less time than a lesson normally would in class.  However, we expect the lesson to take longer to complete when a student is at home.  With this in mind, we will use MSVS at home, but will make sure that we limit the number of lessons so as not to overwhelm students or parents.

            We do have enough chromebooks for every student to have one checked out to them this school year.  With a prolonged outage, we will make arrangments for students to have access to those devices.

            Below, you can find some helpful tips :-)

          • The Matanuska Susitna Borough School District is migrating to a new student information system (SIS) called Synergy for the 2019-2020 school year. This change in our SIS will better support education for MSBSD students. Our current system, SchoolMAX (iParent/iStudent), has become static and its functionality will not improve in the future. Our new SIS is responsive and will evolve with the changing needs of K-12 education and of our District. Transitioning to Synergy allows us to create a more user-friendly platform and optimize operating costs while we continue to focus on quality education for all students. Online registration will begin in early July 2019 and the District will reach out directly to families when registration is open. For additional information, click here, visit www.matsuk12.us/synergy, contact your school’s administration, or contact Reese Everett/Dina Henderson in the Office of Instruction 746-9212.

            There is also a paper application attached.
