Mountain Home: no levy, no school sports

MOUNTAIN HOME, Idaho — The superintendent of the Mountain Home school district is telling voters that if the school levy doesn’t pass, the district will go to a four-day school week, drop all sports programs and academic competitions and cut teacher pay by up to 20 percent.

Superintendent Tim McMurtrey says a loss in state and federal funding for schools in the military town led to the need for the $2.8 million levy. The election is Thursday.

The Idaho Statesman reports the district has identified more than $1 million in cuts it will implement even if the levy does pass, including a 4 percent salary cut for teachers and a 6.5 percent cut for administrators. High school golf and dance programs are also out.

If the levy passes, homes assessed at $200,000 would see property taxes rise by $20 a month.
