Here’s a news item from the Associated Press: LAPWAI, Idaho (AP) — High school students in a north-central Idaho town will have to take gym classes through an online program this year after a school levy failed. Lapwai School District Superintendent David Aiken told the Lewiston Tribune (http://bit.ly/1nKd0Dp ) the district can't afford to hire a physical education teacher, so students will have to take PE through the Idaho Digital Learning Academy, a state-sponsored online school. Students will have access to the school gym and equipment, "but the teacher is on the other side of the computer," Aiken said. About 59 percent of voters opposed the district's $250,000 supplemental levy measure. Voters also rejected a proposed levy in May. This will be the district’s second year without a music program. The district is set to cut teaching positions, a mental health counselor, aides, a bookkeeper, an attendance secretary, a custodian and a bus driver.
