Coeur d’Alene schools levy will be on ballot Tuesday

Residents in the Coeur d’Alene School District will have an opportunity to vote Tuesday on a two-year replacement Supplemental Maintenance and Operations Levy that would replace the 2007 levy that’s expiring this spring.

The proposed replacement levy has been reduced by $1 million to $7,828,687 per year and will fill the gap between state funding and costs to run the district; provide co-curricular programs, including music, debate, athletics; upgrade hardware and technology; continue to provide remedial programs; support programs for academically advanced students in grades 3-12; and help retain support staff, including nursing aides, secretaries, classroom assistants, grounds and custodial staff.

Voting venues will be at all District 271 schools, in the gym foyer at North Idaho College, in the Heart Center lobby of Kootenai Medical Center and at Mica Flats Grange Hall, 7465 W. Kidd Island Road. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Call (208) 664-8241 for more information.
