KPBSD appreciates dedicated staff who will retire this year

“Each year’s retirement of a portion of our most veteran staff is a great loss to our district. The institutional knowledge and high skill level that these departing staff members take with them is difficult to replace.

 To our retiring staff, I wish you the very best with what is next in your life. Please know that your dedication to our students is appreciated; you will be missed.”
– Dr. Steve Atwater, Superintendent

The Kenai Peninsula Borough School District appreciates the commitment and service these retiring employees contributed, each with fifteen or more years in the school district. Each of you has made a difference, THANK YOU!
