The Shoshone School District is starting over after three unsuccessful bond issues.
The rural Magic Valley school district has reconvened a citizens’ committee, which will take another look at the district’s needs, Julie Wootton-Greener of the Twin Falls Times-News reported Sunday.
That means another bond issue is on hold until March at the earliest.
“The idea is to come up with a good plan for the facilities needs,” district Superintendent Rob Waite told the Times-News. “Then, we give the plan back to the school board and they decide the best way to ask for financing.”
Shoshone has pushed for a $6 million bond issue to finance a new multipurpose facility and a new vocational building and modifications at the elementary school and high school. The proposal last appeared on the ballot in March. The proposal received 58 percent support, but fell short of the two-thirds supermajority threshold needed to pass a bond issue.
