Kuna School Board approves emergency levy

The Kuna School Board voted Thursday to approve an emergency levy because of this year's student growth.

Enrollment went up by 72 students this school year -- mostly at the middle and high school.

The more than $300,000 generated from the levy will provide portable classrooms and technology for the additional students.

District leaders say even with this levy, taxes are predicted to drop 20 percent per household.

A school board can approve an emergency levy at the start of a school year if enrollment growth is high enough.

It does not require voter approval.
