Anchorage School District to review base school attendance

Associated PressJanuary 18, 2012 

The Anchorage School District has set up a task force to review attendance at schools at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson.

School district officials say the task force will look at how balanced enrollment will be at three elementary schools because of new housing construction.

The task force will hold meetings at each of the elementary schools: Ursa Major, Mount Spurr and Ursa Minor.

Officials say members of the task force are district representatives, including affected school principals.

Besides the meetings, public comments also will be accepted.
