Dear KPBSD staff, students, families and community members,

As we prepare for the upcoming 2023-2024 school year, I want to express my gratitude to each and every one of you. Our incredible students, steadfast families, supportive community and dedicated business partners are the pillars that uphold the KPBSD. Your unwavering commitment serves as the foundation for our success.

To our outstanding administrators, educators and staff, you are the heartbeat of our educational family. Your dedication goes beyond mere duty; it reflects a shared belief in the untapped potential of every student, offering them a path to academic excellence and a fulfilling life. Your kindness shines through your actions, your guidance inspires, and your unwavering support fosters an environment where our students not only receive an education, but also acquire the tools to forge their own futures. It is a privilege to collaborate with you once again this year.

At KPBSD, our mission is Supporting Student in Life Success through establishing the foundation for academic achievement and continuously expanding college and career opportunities. Fueled by innovation, we adapt to diverse needs across our 42 unique schools, nurturing every student to embody integrity, perseverance, and exemplary character. In looking ahead, we focus on our vision which is reflected in the district’s five-year strategic plan. This plan demonstrates our commitment to enhancing education and our ability to adapt to evolving student needs. We focus on student success, school climate and safety, family and community engagement, workforce development, and organizational and resource management. Our dedication lies in creating an educational environment that nurtures, empowers, and prepares students for a lifetime of learning and accomplishments.

It is an honor to serve as the superintendent of the KPBSD and once again I extend my gratitude and appreciation. Together, we will continue to build a strong future for our students, the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District and for the entire Kenai Peninsula Borough.
