Congratulations to the 2017 Spike Jorgensen Scholarship Winners, Lucero Belen Nelson-Loya of Kotzebue and Shila Marie Rivas of Anchorage. Each will receive $1000 toward their post-secondary education during the 2017-2018 academic year, renewable for up to a total of four years.
There is strong potential for adding dollars to the pre-elementary grant amounts to cover bringing in the current Moore pre-K sites. This has a real possibility of getting introduced and passed (in the House). Also, we are working with Barbara Adams and Jerry Covey on a model to better understand teacher workforce concerns, reduce employee turnover, and increase employee satisfaction and performance.
We are seeking to maintain the $2 million for pre-K that Governor Walker put in his budget and increase that amount to $3.2 million in order to continue funding for Moore pre-K sites. We’ve also asked that our Senators support incentivizing district collaboration around administrative and education services, rather than dictating consolidation – there seems to be some openness to this idea.
