Legislature could add funds for education, prioritize megaprojects

Friday, March 28, 2014

With less than a month until the end of the state’s legislative session, increasing discussion of the state budget is inevitable.  Members of both the House and Senate, as well as Governor Parnell, have made it clear that this budget year will be tight.  Cuts to a number of state programs have already been considered, and much of the discussion of the state’s operating budget is winding down.

In a major development on Friday, the Senate Finance Committee voted to add an additional $75 million dollars for education beyond what Governor Parnell had requested.  Now, the total number for education is $100 million.  Senator Pete Kelly, Co-Chair of the Finance Committee says the increase does not represent the final word on education funding.

Talkeetna preschool struggles this fall

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

The state of Alaska is one of a number of states that does not support a statewide preschool program.  There are communities that have managed to support their own preschool program, but those are either privately funded, Head Start programs or pilot programs.   Trapper Creek has managed to work out a program, with no support from the district or the state.  Talkeetna, due to enrollment levels,  recently lost a tutor position that was also used to support a preschool teacher.
