The Cordova School District is committed to the highest academic standards for students and staff, fully complying with the Alaska State Education Standards.

Student academic success is dependent on a continuous improvement strategy in every classroom.  In Cordova School District, progress is monitored by assessing our students in grades K-10 with the Northwest Evaluation Association Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessment, which our students take three times per year – Fall, Winter, and Spring.  They are assessed in Reading, Language Usage and Math in grades K-10, and in grades 3-10, Science is also assessed.  The results from the MAP test are used to address students’ academic strengths and weaknesses to accelerate academic growth.
