The Ketchikan School Board meets Wednesday, and gets a first look at the draft calendar for the 2018-2019 school year.

The proposed calendar was developed by a committee with representatives from each school in the district. According to a memo from Human Resources Director Shannon Sines, the committee reviewed the pros and cons of the current calendar, and collected input from staff before creating next year’s draft calendar.

The proposed calendar shows the first day of school on Aug. 30th, and the last day on June 7th of 2019.

The calendar is on Wednesday’s agenda for review, and will be an action item at the board’s next regular meeting.

Also Wednesday, the board will vote on a resolution urging state lawmakers to address disparities in the state’s required local contribution for public education; and will revisit a motion to cancel the second meeting in December.

During its November meeting, the board voted 3-2 to cancel the meeting. Although a majority voted yes, a minimum of four votes is required to pass a motion.

Wednesday’s 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.
