During its regular meeting Wednesday, the Ketchikan School Board will hear an update on the Ketchikan High School activities program.
In a written report submitted for the board packet, Principal Bob Marshall says the program went through a Title IX audit to make sure it provides equal opportunities. The audit focused on safety procedures, finances and policies, and overall equity.
Marshall writes that the audit shows the school activities program is equitable, safety is valued, policies are appropriate, and finances are distributed fairly.
Marshall notes in his report that due to changes in other schools’ football programs, Ketchikan’s football team might soon be the only team left in the Southeast division. He says if that happens, they’ll need guidance from the community and school board to figure out what to do next.
Also Wednesday, the board will talk about a proposed “Healthy School Challenge” program, and will assign members to various committees. An executive session at the end of the meeting will allow the board to talk about contract negotiations with Ketchikan Education Association.
The meeting starts at 6 p.m. in Borough Assembly chambers at the White Cliff building. Public comment will be heard at the start of the meeting.
