audioKetchikan: Listen to this story... The State Board of Education will meet later this month to change regulations governing correspondence schools. These changes will likely restrict how state money passed through the correspondence school to the student can be spent.

It is home today to a population of about 340, almost wholly Athabaskan. For such a small town, Nulato has some fascinating stories to tell!- Read the rest of this story by June Allen...
