The Sitka School District is looking at a $1.6-million deficit next year, and it’s unlikely that the city will ride to the rescue. The early numbers for next year are not promising.
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.
