Nampa school superintendent resigns

Here's a news item from the Associated Press: NAMPA, Idaho (AP) ― The superintendent of the Nampa School District has submitted a letter of resignation as the school faces an estimated $2.8 million budget shortfall. The Nampa School Board was scheduled to meet Tuesday night to discuss the matter. Trustee Dale Wheeler says portions of the meeting concerning Gary Larsen's resignation will not be open to the public. Larsen submitted his letter of resignation on Monday. In August, district officials discovered a miscalculation that resulted in a $2.8 million shortfall. District spokeswoman Allison Westfall told the Idaho Press-Tribune that Larsen's resignation is connected to the district's financial issues and that the problem may be worse than they thought. Two errors led to the shortfall ― incoming funds were overestimated and some revenue was counted twice. You can read the Press-Tribune's full report here.
