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.
