            The Kodiak Island Borough School District has seen its fair share of transition in the last year, and that continued at last night’s school board meeting.

            The board itself welcomed Peggy Rauwolf to its ranks. She was officially sworn in to the seat vacated by former member Peggy Tuttle, who resigned when her Coast Guard husband was transferred out of state. Rauwolf was administered the oath of office by board president Betty Odell.

            (School Board 1                     :27s                             “…thank you. [clapping]”)

             Rauwolf was seated immediately and helped the board zip through its short, and mostly routine, agenda. Among the actions it took was authorizing the expenditure of about 93-thousand dollars on office and art supplies for next school year, as well as 32-thousand dollars for a new multimedia computer lab at Kodiak Middle School. The board also approved another 32-thousand dollars for a new van for the district’s shipping and receiving department.

            During board comments, Rauwolf again thanked the board for appointing her to the vacated seat.

            (School Board 2                     :11s                             “…I can prove myself.”)

            Rauwolf will serve until the October municipal election, when the seat will be up for election to fill out the last year of Tuttle’s un-expired term.

            It was also the first meeting for incoming Superintendent Stewart McDonald, although he hasn’t officially taken over for Larry LeDoux, who is leaving to become state education commissioner. McDonald said the transition is going smoothly.

            (School Board 3                     :23s                             “…I’ll be here as superintendent.”)

            McDonald’s first work session as superintendent will be July 14th, while his first regular meeting is scheduled for July 28th.
