Financing the Future

Idaho Education News and Boise State Public Radio partnered to produce a series about how the statewide elections will affect students, communities and taxpayers.

Voters approve $695 million for schools

From a $172.5 million bond issue in Boise to a $90,000 supplemental levy in West Side, Tuesday was almost a clean sweep for Idaho schools. Only one ballot measure failed: a plant facilities levy in the Vallivue School District.

Idaho’s $715 million school election day

At least 46 of Idaho’s 115 school districts will seek bond issues, plant facilities levies or supplemental levies on March 14. Idaho Education News and Boise State Public Radio partnered to produce this series — Financing the Future — on how the statewide elections will affect students, communities and taxpayers.

The legacy of school bonds in Boise

Financing the Future continued: The Boise School District last passed a bond more than a decade ago. This year’s request to voters is more ambitious but necessary, according to trustees.
