Nampa Superintendent Resigns To Regain Public Trust

Nampa’s school superintendent Gary Larsen said  Monday that he's resigning. A spokesperson for The Nampa School District says Larsen hopes the move will restore public trust in how the district manages its finances.

Last month Larsen announced that an accounting error had resulted in a  $2.8  million shortfall going into the new school year.

Larsen credited the error to the district financial office being understaffed. He took responsibility for that situation. Tuesday night Nampa’s school board will hold a special meeting on whether to accept Larsen’s resignation.
