The Boise School District has a beef with the Idaho School Boards Association. At issue is the ISBA’s endorsement of Proposition 1 on Idaho’s November ballot. Prop 1 asks voters if they want to keep the law that restricts collective bargaining for teachers and eliminates long term contracts. Boise School Board president A. J. Balukoff says the ISBA president said in August the organization was split on the ballot referenda and would not take a position.
The Boise District School Board voted to oppose the Students Come First Legislation in a symbolic gesture Tuesday afternoon. Referenda that would reverse the legislation will be on the ballot in November.
President A.J. Balukoff says that the board has an obligation to talk publicly on how the Students Come First laws would impact students in Boise.
“We don’t think they will have a good effect on the students of not only the Boise School District but other districts around the state.”
BOISE, ID – Voters throughout Idaho decide Tuesday on raising property taxes for public schools. But it can be unclear where to vote if you live in Ada County.
Where people go to cast votes on supplemental school levies in Canyon County is pretty clear. The website directs them to their usual polling places. But where to go in Ada County is murkier. Phil McGrane is Chief Deputy at the County Clerk’s office. He says voters won’t find this information on their website.
