The Sitka School Board Wednesday night (4-22-15) approved a budget for next year with only 3 fewer teachers -- but left open the question of whether or not to keep the Community Schools program.

Should the state do more for schools when local governments -- like Sitka’s -- are not doing all they can? That was the question hanging over a joint work session between the Sitka School Board and Sitka Assembly Thursday night (4-10-14). The board presented a draft budget to the assembly with a modest increase in local support to schools -- less than $200,000 -- but also delivered a clear message that more was needed.
The budget picture for the Sitka School District next year is starting to look a little less dire. What started out as a projected $1.5-million deficit just a few weeks ago, has been teased down to $44,000 -- but only by drawing on over half of the district’s savings account.
