Press-Tribune: Vallivue Officials Ask Voters For Second High School

Posted By on Sun, May 19, 2013 at 1:00 PM

As hundreds of high school seniors prepare to bid adieu to Caldwell's Vallivue High, even more students are squeezing into their place. In fact, the school—built in 2000—was designed for 1,200 students, but today, nearly 1,800 students are at Vallivue. Some teachers have to cope with as many as 40 students in a class.

This morning's Idaho Press-Tribune reports that this Tuesday, May 21, voters in the Vallivue District will consider approval of a $50 million bond which would would help fund a second high school. The bond requires a super majority—66.7 percent—for passage. Based on an average home value of $115,000, the bond could cost a taxpayer $40 more per year.

Vallivue School District officials say they have their eye on four different parcels of land—all in the vicinity of Sage Valley Middle School north of Ustick Road—for construction of a new high school.
