UNALASKA (AP) -- A national parenting magazine has named the Unalaska City School District as one of the top 100 districts in the country.
The magazine, called ''Offspring,'' cited the district for strong student achievement and generous public spending in the classroom, according to J.R. Romanko, one of the authors of the piece. Romanko said the magazine looked at more than 15,000 district nationwide before making the selections.
The Unalaska district was one of 13 cited in the western United States, and the only one in Alaska.
''It speaks highly of the community,'' said Darrell Sanborn, the Unalaska superintendent. ''You look at the students and the parents and the teachers -- the support has always been there in Unalaska.''
Romanko said the Unalaska district ranked higher than 99 percent of the district studied in scores on college entrance tests, and in how much money was spent in classrooms.
