Patrons in the Kootenai School District will also vote May 21 on a supplemental levy. The $750,000 levy is for two years.
Like St. Maries, the levy is for two years and is the same amount as what voters approved in 2017. (Patrons in the Plummer/Worley school district approved their supplemental levy in March).
If you detect a trend, then you’re paying attention.
All three school districts in this area rely on supplemental levies to operate. As do the vast majority of school districts throughout the state.
The Kootenai levy represents about 25% of the district’s total budget. The vast majority of school spending goes to pay teachers and staff. To say it another way, the levy is critical to maintain the district’s present programs and services.
Vote YES Tuesday. – Dan Hammes
