Meridian won’t try again on failed school levy

The Meridian School District won't try again this summer on its failed supplemental tax levy request, the Boise Weekly reports, and instead is starting work on cuts including slashing the school year to 14 fewer days than it had two years ago and eliminating 100 teaching jobs. "The taxpayers have spoken," Meridian Superintendent Linda Clark told Boise Weekly reporter George Prentice. "They expect us to live within the means of state funds and that's what we're going to do." You can read Prentice's report here.
