Revilla Alternative School is part of the Ketchikan Gateway Borough School District.
The Ketchikan Gateway Borough’s education-funding lawsuit against the state will get its day in court on June 2. That’s when oral arguments are scheduled to be heard by Superior Court Judge William Carey.
The lawsuit, filed in January, challenges the state over what the borough says is an unfair mandate requiring boroughs and first-class cities — but not anyone else — to fund a minimum level for local schools.
The Fairbanks Borough has filed a friend-of-the-court brief in support of Ketchikan’s lawsuit.
Oral arguments are set to start at 9 a.m. June 2 in Carey’s courtroom, located on the third floor of Ketchikan’s courthouse.
