VII. School District

HB 13 increases the base student allocation and the district cost factor.  These changes, if approved by the Governor, will increase the amount of funding the School District will receive from the State ($1,495,900 in foundation funding and $416,600 in Legislative grants).  This change also increases the CAP to which CBJ is allowed to fund the School District.  Included in your packet is a letter from Peggy Cowan, Juneau School District Superintendent, requesting $344,062 in additional funding from the CBJ.  This additional funding brings the CBJ’s contribution to the new CAP.
