Haines Borough School District

Where students reach their aspirations and contribute to a changing world.


The Alaska state selection committee for the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) program has selected Patty Brown from our very own Haines School as a state level finalist for K-6 teachers of science.  She will be recognized at the next Math/Science Conference in 2015.  
Up to five state level finalists are forwarded to the national selection committee composed of science educators, teachers, and past awardees who will meet to select the PAEMST awardees at the national level.  The teachers chosen will be notified by the White House, will receive a cash award and be honored at various ceremonies. 

Congratulations Ms. Brown on being selected for this prestigious honor in recognition of truly outstanding teaching!

These schools demonstrate a wide array of strengths, including team approaches to teaching and learning, focused professional development opportunities for staff, individualized programs for student success and strong partnerships between the school, parents and the community. What makes National Title I Distinguished Schools' stories especially powerful are the documented student achievement gains that have resulted from their innovations.
It is the mission of the Haines Borough School District to graduate life-long learners with the confidence, skills, and knowledge to realize their aspirations and contribute to a changing world.
The Haines Borough School District operates one school facilities: The Haines School, and a home-school program.
