Kenai Peninsula Borough School District


Last spring, third- through tenth-graders took a new assessment, Alaska Measures Progress, for the first time. AMP replaces the Standards Based Assessments and tests language arts and math skills. District and school results were released this week, and the Homer News plans to report on those results next week.
