For school districts across Idaho, a $709 million election day looms.
At least 45 of Idaho’s 115 school districts will seek bond issues, plant facilities levies or supplemental levies on March 14, according to Idaho Education News research. The bottom line: At least $709.2 million in ballot measures are on ballot.
Under Idaho law, school districts can run ballot measures on four election days: in March, May, August and November.
Why the logjam on March 14? Timing is certainly a factor.
