PETERSBURG-AK Petersburg City Schools will be the first district in Alaska to take part in a Forest Service program aimed at helping to teach students about the natural world. The School Board this week approved an agreement to join the agency’s “Adopt-a-School” program. Among other things, the program will create a school garden and greenhouse.
Also this week, the District Superintendent discussed the idea of a locally-based correspondence school that could serve area homeschoolers. In other news, the Board learned more about Petersburg’s student performance on standardized tests under the federal No Child Left Behind Act. Matt Lichtenstein has a look at some of the news from the August School Board meeting.
