Fairbanks North Star Borough School District

Know your school choice options in Alaska.

In Alaska your child has the option to attend any school in the district (called intradistrict choice), but preference is given to low-income students in low-performing schools to choose a better school in their district. Students can also attend charter schools.

Under the federal No Child Left Behind law, students attending a Title I school designated as "in need of improvement" have the right to attend a higher performing school in the district.
