Kuna may consider another levy

Kuna School District, where voters rejected a two-year, $6.8 million levy last week, may consider going back to the voters again as early as May, Idaho Education News reports.

Kuna Board of Trustees will hold a special meeting at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at Kuna High School Commons, 637 E. Deer Flat Road to discuss the option.

Wendy Johnson, Kuna superintendent, warned last week that the district could lose employees, see larger class sizes, cut programs or reduce the number of school days in 2014-2015, following defeat of the levy 52 percent to 48 percent.

Kuna was the only one of six Treasure Valley districts to lose its levy.

One opponent to the levy was Michael Law, a trustee, who said continuing it was a hardship in a district where 44 percent of the students are low income.
