The Ketchikan School Board will discuss summer construction projects Wednesday, along with curriculum reviews, and will continue discussing the still-uncertain budget.
The Board will vote on installing an emergency generator at Ketchikan High School, and carpeting at Houghtling Elementary School and Revilla Alternative School.
The School District in collaboration with the Borough agreed to manage the purchase and installation of the emergency generator. The generator has been bought, and installation is pending Board approval. P& T Construction is the low bidder at a cost of about $125,000.
Director of curriculum Shannon Sines will report findings from the English, Language Arts, World Language and Library curriculum reviews conducted over the past year and reworked to meet current state standards.
During 2014-2015, the wellness program weighed and measured students as a part of an obesity prevention program. The survey found 19.3% of Ketchikan students were overweight, and 22% were obese. The obesity rates were highest among seventh-grade students.
The Board will vote to approve transfers of funds and discuss a plan Superintendent Robert Boyle outlined in case the Legislature isn’t able to reach a budget agreement before July 1st.
There will be time for public comment at the beginning and end of the meeting, which begins Wednesday at 6 pm in Borough Assembly chambers at the White Cliff building.
