Here’s your chance to learn about Kuna’s school levy

Kuna School District’s upcoming supplemental levy vote on May 20 won’t be as quiet as the last one.

For starters, eight meetings are planned for people to come hear about the levy and ask questions.  School district representatives will be at each one.

Meetings will be held at 6 p.m.

Here are the dates and places:

РApril 10:  Kuna High School, 637 E. Deer Flat Road and Initial Point High School, 1080 N. Ten Mile Road.

– April 17: Ross Elementary, 610 North School Ave.

– April 24: Kuna Middle School, 1360 W. Boise St.

– May 1: Teed Elementary, 441 East Porter Road.

– May 6: Reed Elementary, 1670 N. Linder Road.

– May 8: Crimson Point Elementary, 1941 N. Shayla Ave.

– May 15: Silver Trail Elementary, 2950 W. Mason Creek St., Meridian.

To catch you up: Kuna School District sought to renew a $3.19-million-a-year levy for two years on March 11. It was defeated by less than 100 votes in a light turnout of about 2,100 people.

Without the levy, Kuna Schools faces job cuts through attrition, a shortened school year, and changes to programs, says Wendy Johnson, district superintendent.

Within days of losing the levy, Kuna School Board Trustees set a vote for the May election. If it passes, the levy would cost $326 in property taxes for a home with a taxable value of $100,000.
