The Chatham School District Correspondence Program (CSDCP) is primarily a home school program designed to serve the needs of students and their parents living within the communities of the Chatham School District. CSDCP has been reorganized to meet the growing demand for alternative educational options within our own district.

We strive to provide students and parents choices and flexibility so that learning can suit each family’s needs.

About Our District

A map of Alaska identifying the locations in Southeast where Klukwan, Gustavus, Tenakee, and Angoon are located.

In Southeast Alaska, The Chatham School District serves an area of approximately 43,000 square miles stretching from Angoon,  on Admiralty Island in the South, to Klukwan, beyond Haines, in the North.

The district is composed of four schools in separate communities. Angoon lies on Admiralty Island. Tenakee Springs is on Chichagof Island. Gustavus lies on the mainland near the entrance to Glacier Bay. The village of Klukwan lies 22 miles North of Haines. The communities are accessible by state ferry and/or plane. The schools vary in enrollment from a dozen in Tenakee to about 75 in Angoon.

The overall operation of the Chatham District is under leadership of an elected board. The board members can be contacted by mail through the district office at Post Office Box 109, Angoon, Alaska 99820.

The board believes that input from the site level can improve school performance. There is an Advisory School Board representing each site. Chatham’s School Superintendent, Bruce Houck, in conjunction with board members and all school staff, implements school policies. The Regional Board recognizes that we live in a pluralistic society, which must use the diversity of culture, talent and experience to provide the highest quality of educational planning for children.

Mission Statement

In Partnership with parents and community, Chatham School District will provide safe and stable educational experiences built upon the uniqueness of each community, to educate students to become self-sufficient adults
who will be contributing members of our diverse and changing world.
