City, school district to split federal schools funding

SITKA, ALASKA The Secure Rural Schools Act or Timber Receipt funds were re-allocated this year, and the city is slated to receive about 1.8 million dollars—thanks in large part to members of the school board lobbying congress on behalf of the act. Last night (2-10-09) the Sitka assembly voted to approve an amendment that would give the school district half of the 85% of the funding left after 15% of it is paid to the Forest Service. But Some Sitka parents and educators wanted to see that percentage increased.
