Voters approve Post Falls school levy

Coeur d’Alene Press

Voters in the Post Falls School District have overwhelmingly approved a $1.7 million school levy.

School Superintendent Jerry Keane says the district will be frugal with the money. About $250,000 will go toward state funding reduction assistance, about $650,000 will go to facility maintenance and $300,000 will go to technology maintenance. The levy will also help pay for student academic assistance programs.

The district has had a supplemental levy on the books for at least 25 years. The levy will not increase school property taxes.
