Voters Approve School Levies in Two Districts, Fail in One


As students are returning for the first days of classes, school districts across the state went to voters in hopes of passing supplemental levies, among them a slate of Southwestern Idaho districts.

Several districts managed to pass levies on Aug. 27, among them the Emmett school district where voters approved a two-year, $2.8 million levy, and the Parma District, in which a 10-year, $2.5 million level won 79 percent of the vote.

Unfortunately, the Homedale District didn't see the same support. Voters there rejected a proposal for a two-year, $968,200 levy.
