Twin Falls schools mull emergency levy to accommodate increased students

By  | 

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — The Twin Falls School District is seeing an increase in students this year, and they are now considering an emergency school levy.

In the first three days of school, the district takes the average attendance. This year the district is up 522 students from last year.

The budget advisory committee met Tuesday morning to discuss the levy, which would give the school district an extra $2,500 for the 2018-19 school year to accommodate the growth.

Emergency school levies do not require an election, but are put in place as a way to deal with extreme school growth.

The committee recommended that the school board approve the levy. They will vote on the issue at the school board meeting Sept. 10 at 7 p.m.
