Teton Valley Votes On School Levy

March 8, 2011 Teton County, Teton County Schools No Comments
TC School 401

Teton County Idaho School District #401 will be seeking a supplemental levy at the polls today.  School officials have explained that the shortfall is the result of the Idaho Property Tax Relief Act passed in August of 2006 which removed all maintenance and operation costs for school districts from the local property tax roles and shifted funding for education to the Idaho sales tax revenues.  Consequently, that district sought and received from the voters a supplemental level to cover the operating expenses for the district in 2007 which was re-approved in 2009.  However, the levy is again expiring and the district is asking voters to again approve the tax.  Additionally, the district is seeking a plant-facility levy to help repair or replace heating and other equipment in district schools.  If passed, the supplemental levy would provide $2.6-million per year over the biennium for school operations and the plant facility levy would generate $400-thousand per year for the next five years.  Polls will be open from 8:00 am until 8:00 pm.
