Anchorage districts investigates costs, benefits of closing more than dozen schools


ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The Anchorage School District is asking district officials to determine any the costs, savings and benefits involved with closing more than a dozen schools.

KTUU reports ( the school board made the request of district administrators earlier this month.

This is in response to the district's project shortfall of $73 million over the next three years.

There's several different fiscal projections drafted. School Board President Eric Croft says the district hasn't acted on any of them, and to do so would take two years to implement.
