The Kodiak Island Borough School District is currently tasked with trying to balance a budget deficit of more than $4.1 million for Fiscal Year 2024, which starts on July 1.

The school district is projecting it will receive about $44.5 million in local, state and federal funding next year, including $24.8 million from the state through its per-student allocation funding formula. There haven’t been any meaningful increases in state funding for schools since 2017, Board of Education President Dave Johnson said in a Tuesday interview with KDM. The BOE met to discuss next year’s budget Monday night.

Thanks Dunleavy…we have a real problem in this state with young families leaving. Want to keep people here? Providing a good education for their kids is a good first step.
