KPBSD operates a Migrant Education program that provides supplemental support for migrant eligible students and their families. These services help ensure that students do not fall behind academically because of their migratory status.
Indian Education, Title VI
The KPBSD Title VI, Indian Education Program provides supplemental support for Alaska Native and Native American students in the district.
