III. PUBLIC COMMENT (Related to Agenda Items)
Superintendent Rich Carlson referred the names of the Tenured Teachers as listed in the Board packet: Don Busse, Kay Butler, Sabrina Demmert, Angela Hoppe, Abe Horpestad, Julie Horpestad, Jean Jackson, Kelli Larson, and Rob Steward. He added that enrollment is now at 125 students, a gain of six over recent weeks. The District received a letter from EED regarding funds due the district of $9,745 from the results of the “disparity test”. We also have received $36,000 from HB 108 which was one-time funds from last year’s legislative session. For FY 13 the Governor has indicated that although he does not support an increase in the BSA, he will, however, support transportation and energy funding for districts translating into about $36,000 to $40,000 for Klawock. These increases could potentially leave us with as much as $90,000 in unanticipated revenues, which would be a welcome addition in preparing for next year’s budget shortfalls. Mr. Carlson also thanked the Board for helping support Forestry Receipts with their e-mails to our Congressional Delegation. There is some movement in Congress that would extend the Secure Rural Schools Act for one year.
