NAMPA, Idaho — The Nampa School District has proposed a supplemental levy for 2020.

The levy would provide the school district with $12,895,000 per year for two years, or a total of $25,790,000 for two years.

After the previous supplemental levy failed, which proposed $12,075,000 for two years, or a total of $24,150,000 for two years, the Nampa School District Board of Trustees voted to put the larger current levy on the March 10 ballot.

Residents in the Nampa School District will be able to vote on the levy on the March 10 presidential primary ballot. The levy needs a majority vote to pass.

The levy funds would be allocated in multiple areas of the school district's operations and would be a lower property rate overall, according to the Nampa School District's website.
