Dr. Atwater: “Tomorrow night at Soldotna Middle School, we’ll be having our second Soldotna reconfiguration advisory committee meeting, and that’s at 5:30. Great chance for the public to observe the advisory committee as they debate and talk about the various issues that are coming forward with reconfiguration.”


This will be the second of six meetings planned for this fall. The others will be held:  October 8, October 22, November 5, and November 19.


Pegge Erkeneff with the District was at the first meeting, held September 10…


Erkeneff: “I think as it went around the table several times, and Mr. Hayman did a really good job bringing forth: ‘What is the issue, where do we want to start with?’ The biggest questions I heard that I think need answers are: what is the 9th grade house going to look like? What is the definition from the state and what’s it going to look like in this district? That was one area, probably the biggest area that I heard. The second area that came up for immediate questioning was around funding and how is this going to get paid for if we want to make recommendations?”
