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.
sponsored According to two 2015 surveys, 62 percent of Americans do not have enough savings to handle an unexpected emergency, much less any long-term plans.
