What's Happening in MSBSD for the 2022-2023 School Year
The MSBSD mission is to 'prepare all students for success' and MSBSD is a good place for students to learn, one of the best in the state but, we are striving to make it even better! We want to make our district one of the standout districts in the nation.
PLC Mondays allows our instructional staff the time to examine student work, develop common assessments and collaborate on instructional strategies so we improve academic achievement and graduate students who are more ready to enter into a career and/or college.
MSBSD 2023-2027 Strategic Plan
As an Established Best Practice in Government Finance, MSBSD developed a Long-term Strategic Plan that includes five key strategic priorities:
1) Student Achievement
2) Educational Access
3) School Safety
4) Process Improvement
5) Capital Planning.
Our student population is diverse—from various socio-economic, cultural, and language backgrounds. We welcome and embrace our diversity and strive to provide an equitable, strong educational foundation for all Mat-Su students.
