Ketchikan Gateway School Board Update

Michelle O’Brien of the Ketchikan Gateway School Board joined us on Morning Edition to discuss last night’s meeting.

She talked about the Board’s decision not to purchase a number of new laptops for student use, as well as potential budget cuts at the Ketchikan Gateway Borough School District. The Board meeting also had a substantial public comment period, as a number of local residents attended to support their support or opposition for a number of issues.
