        Dear MSBSD community,  

            
        We know that strong public education is at the heart of strong and successful communities. In Mat-Su, our schools offer choices and options that meet the needs of our students as they prepare and plan for their futures. Changing to meet students' learning habits, we focus on what will help every student be prepared after high school for college, careers, or military service.

           
        The District's mission is that we prepare students for success. In order to achieve that, we must create what kids need for their future rather than what’s always been. We are MSBSD! Please click here for more of Dr. Paramo's Welcome Message.

         
        Sincerely,
        deena
        Dr. Deena M. Paramo
        MSBSD Superintendent
