Another district OKs an emergency levy

Enrollment in the Twin Falls School District is increasing again — going from 8,216 to 8,592 for 2013-14.

In the face of this 4.4 percent enrollment increase, the board approved a $1.4 million emergency levy to hire additional staff.

Here are more details about the levy — and future building needs in the Twin Falls district — from The Times-News.
