DAYTON – Funding looks like it will be reinstated to West Side and other school districts across the state if the Idaho Senate follows the lead of the House and approves House Bill 65.
This was a bill that restores funding tied to the education reforms that voters repealed last year and which school districts had expected when originally budgeting for the year.
Spending authority was rescinded as a consequence of the repeal and this legislation puts it back in place.
Assistant Superintendent Spencer Barzee said the district could receive $250,000.
“There are a lot of other bills in motion at the moment, but nothing of significance has been passed. It appears that many items will be reinstated specifically from Proposition One that relates to union and district negotiations. There is some feeling that the public was misled on this issue last fall prior to the general election,” Barzee told the school board on Wednesday.
