CDA Cuts School Levy By $1M

Item: Cd'A levy could be $1M less: Superintendent asks trustees for lower amount at Monday meeting/Maureen Dolan, CDA Press

More Info: Superintendent Hazel Bauman recommended to trustees at a special board meeting Monday that the district set the levy amount at $7.8 million. Before making her recommendation, Bauman spent two weeks speaking with and polling nearly 300 people representing community groups -- the chamber of commerce, the Rotary, the Parent-Teacher Association Alliance, Jobs Plus, the Excel Foundation and Concerned Businesses of North Idaho. Just 1 percent of those Bauman asked thought it would be a good idea to increase the levy amount while 68 percent were in favor of decreasing it, and 31 percent thought it should remain the same.

Question: Do you believe Superintendent Hazel Bauman's inclusive approach to setting a levy amount guarantees its passage?
