The Kenai Peninsula Borough School District Board of Education heads back to work today with plenty on its plate.
After a holiday break, the board is kicking off the new year with talks of tight budgets and school consolidations.
This afternoon, the board will conduct a series of employee and student hearings, which are closed to the public and involve confidential matters.
At 4 p.m., board activities will reopen to the public, however, with a one-hour budget work session. On the agenda is discussion of revisions to the current 2003 fiscal year budget and preliminary plans for the 2004 fiscal year budget.
Documents for the budget discussions were not available in advance, due to the holidays, but will be available at the work session.
At 5 p.m., the board will hold a work session to discuss school consolidations. The board is not scheduled to take any action on the consolidation plan but will discuss how and why such plans might be implemented and how to best involve the community in the decisions.
At 7:30 p.m., the board will hold its regularly scheduled meeting. On the agenda are reports from both work sessions, as well as action items regarding the revised pay schedule for substitutes and other temporary employees, new teacher assignments, leaves of absence, leftover bond funds and the Kenai Peninsula Administrator's Asso-ciation's negotiated agreement.
Work sessions and board meetings are held in the assembly chambers at the Borough Administration Building, 148 N. Binkley St., Soldotna. A full agenda is available online at www.kpbsd.k12.ak.us/ schboard/Default.htm or at the meeting.
