Enterprise: Payette Schools Still Worried, In Spite of Levy Passage

Posted By on Sat, Mar 30, 2013 at 11:35 AM

Just because its voters passed a two-year $695,000 per-year supplemental levy on March 12 doesn't mean officials in the Payette School District are breathing that much easier.

The Independent Enterprise reports that Payette Superintendent Pauline King says when the the current funding runs out, the school district may be faced with more difficult decisions.

"The state is volatile," King told the Enterprise. "There's not a school district in the state that is not worried about funding right now."

King said that without the recently approved supplemental levy, Payette would have been forced to shut down Westside Elementary School, eliminate many of Payette High School's electives, and even shift to a four-day school week.
