The Juneau Assembly adopted an ordinance appropriating about $85.8 million to the Juneau School District for fiscal year 2019 during a Regular Assembly Meeting May 14. Funding comes from a combination of sources, including CBJ’s contribution of about $27.8 million. That figure consists of: $26.4 million for general operations, which is the maximum local contribution allowed by state law, and roughly $1.38 million for student activities, pupil transportation, food service and Community Schools.
The $26.4 million in general operations support is an increase of $0.6 million over FY18. The other program and activities funding is an increase of $0.5 million over FY18.
The Assembly is set to finalize the rest of the budget at the June 4 Regular Meeting.
