SW Idaho voters to weigh school funding measures
NAMPA, Idaho (AP) -- Voters throughout southwestern Idaho will be asked to approve school funding measures Tuesday.
The Idaho Press-Tribune reports the Nampa School District is proposing a $1.6 million levy after voters rejected a $3.6 million measure in March. With the lower amount, the district is now seeking to continue a levy already in place, which means it wouldn't result in additional property tax increases.
The measure, if approved, would generate funds for areas including textbooks and building repairs.
Elsewhere in the region, the Kuna School District is proposing a two-year, $3.19 million levy to help officials avoid 25 teacher layoffs, while the Wilder School District is seeking approval for a measure to raise $310,000 annually for two years.
Voters will also be asked to approve levies in Homedale and Notus.
