More than 380 people participated in a Nampa School District survey seeking ideas for cutting costs or building revenue to bridge a projected $4.3 million budget gap for this school year.
Those written responses, submitted by the Monday noon deadline, have not yet been sorted by category, district spokeswoman Allison Westfall said.
Interested parents, teachers and other community members are welcome to offer suggests in person Tuesday night during a meeting of the districts budget committee. The public comment period will begin at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Columbia High School, 301 S. Happy Valley Road, Nampa.
Each commenter will be limited to three minutes.
The district is working to find solutions to its massive projected budget deficit, reportedly caused by budgeting mistakes over the past two years that grossly overestimated revenue and led the district to spend more than it really had. The budget committee, which met for the first time last week, expects to meet weekly through the fall and make recommendations to the school board. Suggestions from community members will help shape the committee's recommendations.
