School Board members discussed the possibility of instituting a Skagway Fire Department cadet program in Skagway School.

If approved, students in the program would be paged in the classroom should an emergency arise.

Board President John Hischer said the students would be shadowing SFD volunteers and employees, and added that a pager going off in class might be disruptive.

“I think it’s a wonderful thing, but I don’t want it to be disrupting class,” he said.

Board members agreed that SFD would need to organize logistics with the school before any decisions are made.
