Forty-five of Idaho’s 115 school districts will seek bond issues or property tax levies. See what’s on the ballot in your corner of the state.
All told, 92 districts will collect $216.6 million in voter-approved property taxes — the fifth successive year of record supplemental levies.
The two-year levies — worth $28 million in West Ada and $3 million in Middleton — had failed during Idaho’s vote-by-mail spring primary.
In another Tuesday school election, the West Jefferson School District will seek a bond issue to replace a cafeteria and kitchen.
Voters rejected the two-year, $3 million levy during this spring’s primary.
The West Ada School District will run a $28 million supplemental levy in August — making use of a law many legislators want to change.
Monday morning’s decision came only 13 days after voters rejected the proposal. West Ada will again seek to renew a two-year, $28 million levy.
The coronavirus pandemic is forcing the state to hold an unprecedented vote-by-mail election. Fifteen school districts have levies or bond issues on the ballot.
