The Kodiak Island School District Board of Education is hosting a community forum this evening (Wed.) to review the district’s budget plan for next school year.
The plan depends on state and local funding, which is still very much up in the air. But school officials said they want to include the public in the process and to get vital local input from parents and others.
The meeting begins at 6 p.m. this evening (Wed.) in the Choral Pod at the Gerald C. Wilson Auditorium.
While budget changes are a certainty, there is another big change expected to take place at the start of the new fiscal year in July. July 1 is when newly hired school superintendent Larry LeDoux is expected to officially begins his job.
LeDoux, a well-known name around the schools, was hired after an extensive national search. A life-long Alaskan he is a previous teacher, principal and former superintended of the Kodiak school district.
He also served as Commissioner of Education for the State of Alaska under both governors Palin and Parnell.
