School District building with no snowThe Petersburg School Board hasn’t met for a regular meeting since June 14. Tuesday night, the group will gather in the high school library to go over the upcoming school year and hear reports from district administrators.

The board will be going over capitol improvement projects or CIP projects for fiscal year 2018. The top three priorities the school district would like to see funded is the middle school boiler replacement, the high school boiler replacement, and renovations to the district wide food service.

The board will also discuss board goals, superintendent goals, and AASB call for resolutions. The Association of Alaska School Boards is seeking resolutions from local school boards to consider at the annual conference in November. The resolutions guide the association during the upcoming legislative session.

There are two school board seats to fill in the October 4 municipal election. The seats are three year terms. One is currently held by Mara Lutomski and the other one is vacant. The last day to file for those seats is August 23.

Office staff and principals are back to work next Monday, August 15. There will be staff in-service August 22-25. The first day of school for students is Monday, August 29.

There will also be a public tour of the district campus at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday evening prior to the meeting in the library.
