The newly formed Ketchikan Gateway Borough School District Indian Policy and Procedures Committee has scheduled two public meetings, December 11th and December 13th, with both starting at 5:30 p.m. at the Saxman Community Center.

The purpose of the first meeting is for parents and community members to provide input about district schools’ programs. The committee will take written suggestions as well as comments from the public.

During the second meeting, the committee will review suggestions from the earlier meeting, and will decide what official recommendations to send to the Ketchikan School Board.

Performance information is available on the Ketchikan Gateway Borough School District website at www.kgbsd.org, as well as at the School District Central Office, the City Clerk’s Office, the Borough Clerk’s Office; the public library; Saxman and Ketchikan Indian Community offices; and Cape Fox headquarters.
