LPOSD needs your vote on March 14. Like most districts in Idaho, supplemental levies are necessary to maintain existing staff and programming. This levy funds one-third of all district staff, all academic and extracurricular activities, technology and all curricular materials, and professional development. It provides for teaching, learning and student wellness and it ensures appropriate class sizes and the opportunity for electives.
LPOSD ranks 24th out of 110 districts in Idaho. Sandpoint High School ranks seventh among high schools. This is impressive considering our levy rates are well below the state average. This shows the great value we get for our investment. We must be vigilant in funding education if we want to be prosperous in the future. Please join me and vote YES on the LPOSD Supplemental Levy March 14.

While we have you ...
... if you appreciate that access to the news, opinion, humor, entertainment and cultural reporting in the Sandpoint Reader is freely available in our print newspaper as well as here on our website, we have a favor to ask. The Reader is locally owned and free of the large corporate, big-money influence that affects so much of the media today. We're supported entirely by our valued advertisers and readers. We're committed to continued free access to our paper and our website here with NO PAYWALL - period. But of course, it does cost money to produce the Reader. If you're a reader who appreciates the value of an independent, local news source, we hope you'll consider a voluntary contribution. You can help support the Reader for as little as $1.
