Twin Falls School District Asks For Supplemental Levy
Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Funding from the state of Idaho for the Twin Falls School District has dropped by four and a half percent.
Voters will head to the polls in a month to decide whether to pass another two year supplemental levy. A member of the school district's budget advisory committee says a new levy is needed. It would mean an increase of $1.30 cents a month for every $100,000 your home is worth.
Budget Advisory Committee Member Ray Parrish says, "The vote will be held March 12th, and we've got a $9 million levy that would go over two years. Now understand that the current levy expires in June of this year, so this would replace that levy."
Parrish says the school district appreciates the support it's already received from taxpayers. And if the supplemental levy passes, that will help maintain the district's current level of education excellence.
