  • Migrant Education Annual Survey

    The Alaska Migrant Education Office is conducting its annual survey of parents of migrant-eligible children.  The information from the survey helps determine the needs of migrant students on both a state-wide level, and also for students enrolled with NPS.  Your input helps us determine what programs and/or services we should offer through our Migrant Education Program.  If you are a parent of a migrant-eligible student in Nome Public Schools, we invite you to complete the survey by March 31st.  You may click on the link below to complete an electronic survey, or paper forms are available at the front office of Nome Elementary School, Nome-Beltz Jr/Sr High School, Anvil City Science Academy, or the District Office.  Paper forms need to be returned to any NPS school or the district office by March 31st.  

    If you have any questions, please contact Jamie Burgess at 907-443-6197 or
