K-12 Instructional Programs & Curriculum Support

What we do...

Our primary goal is to help teachers provide the best education possible for students of the Lower Kuskokwim School District through Yugtun, Cugtun and English language instruction. In order to meet this challenge, our responsibilities include facilitating all curriculum development and implementation, Yup'iq or Cup'ig language and culture programs, and conducting staff development, training and on-site support.
