On January 14, the district Board of Trustees unanimously approved a resolution for a $19 million bond to build a new elementary school and improve existing schools. They also unanimously approved a resolution for a two-year replacement supplemental levy worth $4.955 million per year, for a total of $9.91 million.
The bond requires a two-thirds majority to pass, while the levy requires a simple majority. The requests were the result of the Long Range Facility Plan Committee’s work. Per the plan, $12.5 million of the bond funds will pay for a new elementary school in the Foxtail subdivision east of Highway 41. Another $6.5 million will go to updating and enhancing numerous schools. Bond funds would also be used to purchase land for future school sites. These proposals, if approved March 12, will not increase the district taxes of the average Post Falls taxpayer.
