Sandpoint Area OKs School Levy

The Lake Pend Oreille School District levy has passed with 59.5 percent of the vote. The $10.95 million supplemental levy received 3,965 yes votes to 2,699 no votes. The levy required a simple majority for approval, 50 percent plus one vote. The levy is divided in two parts, with $4.6 million to be collected in year one and $6,350,000 in year two/Marlisa Keyes, Bonner County Bee. More here.

Question: Lake Pend Oreille School District is known as one of the toughest places to pass school bonds and levies in North Idaho. Is this a promising sign in these tough economic times for other districts who want to pass supplemental levies?
