School Levy Results in Southern Idaho
Many of you voted either for, or against school levy's yesterday. It is no surprise that all Southern Idaho school's are overcrowded due to our rapid population increase over the last few years. With the population increase our schools need more money to build new facility's, hire more staff and stay up to date on education and technology.
