DILLINGHAM--  The Dillingham Elementary School is keeping track of how  many words students read by using a computer program that tracks the kid’s efforts.  The students have from the beginning of the school year to May to reach one million words and then they will win a tee-shirt and their name will be posted on the gym wall.  Only two months into the school year and one student has already hit that million word mark.  KDLG’s Thea Card has the story.

Alaska Native Science and Engineering Program

The Alaska Native Science and Engineering Program, or ANSEP, was awarded a $6 million grant through the passage of House Bill 278.  The program is using that money to offer eight additional Middle School Academies.

ANSEP works with the University of Alaska system to effect systemic change in the hiring patterns of Alaska Natives in science and engineering by placing students on a career path to leadership.  This starts by placing students beginning in sixth grade through high school in science and engineering undergraduate degree programs.
