Is LKSD Prejudice Against African Americans, Asians and Hispanics?

Is it true that LKSD has problems with prejudice against staff that are Hispanic, Asian and African American. Is it true that people of color don't stay because they are racist? I also heard that they don't recruit minorities and go to job fairs where the students are mostly white.
If this is true, SHAME ON YOU LKSD!

If you are HISPANIC or BLACK FORGET WORKING AT LKSD. I went to a fair in Anchorage, Alaska and all of the administrators are as WHITE as the Alaska snow. I don't mean just LKSD either. It is a WHITE state and if you are not an Alaska Native the school districts have no idea what to do with you.
Best to avoid these racist school districts and they are EVERYWHERE in Alaska. Maybe Anchorage and Fairbanks have some diversity, but outside of those two places you are on your own.

You are misinformed and ignorant. Bethel is about as diverse as possible the racial makeup is 28% White, 62% Native American, 3% Asian, 7% two or more races, and 2% Hispanics or Latinos of any race.
LKSD has many problems i will admit but racism is certainly not one of them. My experience with LKSD (I did k-12 in Bethel) and they are tolerant and encourage cultural diversity so you might want to actually think before you open that ignorant mouth of yours.

They are awful at LKSD if you are Hispanic--they'll violate your rights left and right. If you are white or Alaska Native, NO PROBLEM! As one poster wrote they go to all white job fairs, not California, Florida or Texas where there is diversity.
The "bethel resident" is an excellent example of the anger of people who live up there--many have rifles, pistols and other weapons under their beds (no kidding). The foster child of one of the LKSD superinetendedents took her (unsecured) rifle and used it in a mess shooting at the Bethel school.
If you need law enforcement in a village up there, hope the weather is good and the bush plane can come in with the state police, if not you are on your own. Maybe that's who everyone has a rifle under their beds. LOL!
All and all a really nutty place and best to avoid unless you want to contract a mental illness like PTSD. LOL!!!
