The Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly will ask the state to count the number of students enrolled in the school district last year, rather than this year, to determine how much funding the district will get in the 2021 fiscal year.
The assembly voted unanimously to put forth the recommendation at its meeting Tuesday.
Winter vacation is over for Kenai Peninsula students, who returned to their virtual classrooms Monday. But in just a week, they’ll be back in their real classrooms, the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District announced this afternoon.
The district was originally planning to reopen schools Jan. 19, following guidance from an advisory committee that included teachers, staff and medical experts.
Now that return will happen Jan. 11. The district said the shift is because of a reduction in COVID-19 transmission on the peninsula.
