Back to School

It is that time of year again.

The Fairbanks North Star Borough Schools starts a new academic year this morning.

A tentative agreement has been made with the School Teachers and support staff.

And a new program, "Ignition," meant to help integrate High School Freshman and new students, will give them an extra day with mentors today.
The rest of the High School students will begin tomorrow.

Also, after submitting a waiver this year, the schools are hoping to revamp the calculations for the No Child Left behind Program.
