When the Boise City Council votes tonight, they'll vote on a vote.
In a non-binding resolution, the council will weigh in on the upcoming Boise School District supplemental level election, which is asking voters for $14 million over the next five years to help fill budget gaps and, in effect, preserve class size, according to district officials. The levy is set for Tuesday, March 13.
In Wednesday's BW, we consider a campaign, waged by Friends of Boise Schools, which is about to ramp up in a big way, mobilizing as many as 400 volunteers to man phone banks and canvass neighborhoods through the school district. On the flip side, we'll also visit KIDO talk show host Austin Hill, who isn't shy with his criticism of the district's adminsitration.
