Nampa School Board trustees will listen to the public’s ideas about a supplemental tax levy for schools over three days beginning Tuesday.
Nampa’s current two-year, $3.4-million-a-year levy expires in June. The levy pays for 14 instructional days and 25 teachers that cut when the district suffered financial problems in 2012-2013. The board is considering a proposal that would continue that and also improve curriculum and technology by raising more money, though without increasing the $4.23 per $1,000 of taxable value rate that is now in place.
The board is also considering another levy proposal that could raise the tax rate by 25 cents and a third by 45 cents. These would also pay for some music, activity equipment and supply costs and add teachers.
Two meetings a day are planned on Tuesday through Thursday. Some trustees will be available at each meeting.
Times are 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the district office, 619 S. Canyon St. in Nampa.
