asked Mr. Painter if he was correct.

Mr.  Painter  explained  the  item  was  a  request  by  the

funding  to  school districts.  Since  Mt.  Edgecumbe was  a                                                                    
state-run school, it was appropriate  for the school to have

was  a pass  through recipient  for the  other schools.  The

Chair Foster emphasized  that it was not  something only Mt.                                                                    
Edgecumbe was  receiving. All schools would  receive some of                                                                    
the COVID-related  funds. The separate appropriation  had to                                                                    
do with Mt.  Edgecumbe being a boarding school.  He asked if                                                                    
he was correct.                                                                                                                 
                                                                                                                                
Mr.  Painter relayed  that  the  appropriation was  separate                                                                    
because  it  was  a   state-managed  school.  Mt.  Edgecumbe

The state received the funds  for the other school districts
