SITKA, ALASKA The Sitka school district budget will remain more or less flat next year — despite a boost in per-pupil funding from the state. Declining enrollment continues to be the major strain on the district's finances. The district is planning on around 1320 students next year, about 35 fewer than are currently enrolled in the system. The Sitka school board presented its '09 budget to the assembly on Tuesday (4-8-08). Following the meeting, KCAWs Robert Woolsey spoke with board member Mollie Kabler about some of the assumptions in next year's budget.
