TWIN FALLS, ID (KMVT-TV) A local school district has big plans, now that they've got a levy to go on.

The Twin Falls School District Superintendent Wiley Dobbs says, the district will be able to keep some classes they would have lost.
They also will be able to add back more days onto their school calendar.

"Pick back up with our technology budgets with our curriculum budgets and it will allow us to add some days back to our calendar. You know, we cut 11 days from our teacher's contracts, four student-teacher days, and so, we'll be able to add some of those back, perhaps half or maybe a little bit more of those back," said Dobbs.

He also said they were able to keep 45 to 65 positions that would have been lost if the levy had not passed.
