I Have Filed for Re-Election!

Kathleen Plunkett portrait

I am Kathleen Plunkett and I am running for re-election to the Anchorage School Board. I believe that our children deserve the best education possible. I have concentrated on children, families, infrastructure and public safety during my many years of community service. I believe in our public school system and I will continue to problem solve to make a positive difference. I am a life-long Alaskan. I have spent almost 50 years in Anchorage. My whole family has attended our schools in Anchorage. I graduated from UAA and have worked as an accountant for 35 years.

I support:

  • Increasing our graduation rate and early literacy rates (K-3)
  • Programs that keep our children interested and in school
  • High academic standards
  • The opportunity for all students to achieve their potential
  • Career & Technical Education and College Preparation Programs
  • Neighborhood, Alternative and Charter Schools
  • Making neighborhoods safer for our children
  • Funding the retirement systems for our teachers and school employees
  • Adequate State funding and forward funding for Education
  • Continuation of the debt reimbursement program
  • Continue working with the Municipality to achieve savings (such as keeping the Internal Auditor position)
