Our so-called “supplemental” school levy is no longer supplemental … with our state funding for schools the lowest in the entire nation, local school district levies provide essential funding for almost all districts in Idaho. In Lake Pend Oreille School District the school levy now constitutes 35% of the annual budget. Should it ever fail to pass our district would face drastic cuts, including up to a third of staff. Let’s say YES to secure, adequate funding for our school. Please … vote YES for the continuing levy on November 5.
