The Meridian School District, largest in Idaho, has decided to run a supplemental levy election on Tuesday, March 13, the same day as a levy election in the Boise district.
Meridian's proposed tax hike would raise $14 million a year over two years. District officials say they need $10 million in extra funding to add back nine instructional school days that were cut from their calendar last year. Meridian school officials said they need an additional $4 million for their operating budget.
