School Board to Take Up State Healthcare Proposal

The School Board is meeting tonight at 7pm, after their various committees meet all day today.


School Board President Joe Arness said they will hear public testimony on a range of issues, including a new proposal to join the districts in healthcare…


Arness: “Allowing employees to opt out of healthcare. It’s an ongoing conversation and it’s one of those situations where people present their numbers and somebody else presents their numbers and they come out with very different conclusions to the same question. And so today we’re going to look at a bunch of information that’s been brought up because of this movement at the State level to potentially try and tie all the school districts together in one health insurance pool.”


The Board meets in the Borough Assembly Chambers in Soldotna.
