JDHS Principal's Corner

A message from Principal Casperson

Spring break is finally here.  While the weather outside doesn’t feel springy we sure are loving the increased minutes of light each day.  And for those of you who are inclined to spend the break on the slopes of Eaglecrest there should certainly be enough snow.  In the event that you are one of the many seeking respite elsewhere we wish you safe travels!

When we return from our spring break we begin our fourth quarter term, and the final nine weeks of the school year.  On the calendar for that term we will host the AK Star testing for all ninth grade students, the Standards Based Assessment Science test for all tenth grade students and Advanced Placement exams for AP students who elected to sign up for them.  We will also host spring student council elections, one final spirit week and of course senior events leading up to May 28th and graduation.  As your time allows, this week is a good week to once again review your student’s progress, celebrating the academic gains and creating a plan for support where needed.  

While most of our attention is on wrapping up the current school year we are hard at work, behind the scenes, planning for the start to our next school year.  At the state level conversations continue regarding school funding and what is known as the Base Student Allocation (BSA).  At the district level the Juneau School Board is finalizing the proposed JSD budget, which is tied to the BSA formula.  At the building level we are tabulating course requests and beginning to see which courses we can offer, in hopes of matching those courses to a classroom teacher, with the teacher allocations also tied to school funding.  Building schedules, hiring teachers and assigning classes are all pieces to the puzzle of school funding, student and family interests and the ultimate goal of receiving a high school diploma.  Pieces and parts will fall into place throughout the spring, and as they do we will work to provide you with updates on our planning for the 23-24 school year.
