Meridian gears up for two big school elections in 2014

Idaho’s largest school district faces a busy election year in 2014.

And an important one as well.

The Meridian School District will seek another supplemental levy, most likely in March, and a building bond issue, probably in August.

The dates aren’t official — and no dollar figures are set either. But Meridian school officials are hoping to cash in on an economic rebound and use some financial restructuring to lessen the impact on taxpayers.

For a closer early look at both proposals, here’s a link to my story at Idaho Education News.
