Boise School Board Votes to Hold $172.5 Million Bond Election

The Boise School Board voted unanimously to hold a $172.5 million bond election in March 2017 for a 10-year Educational Facilities Master Plan.

Much of the community has shown support for the bond. If approved by voters, the board of trustees say the bond will allow the district to reinvest in local schools and the community without raising the current tax rate.

More than $155 million will go into 22 major capital projects including rebuilding six schools, a new school in the Harris Ranch area and expansion in technical programs to train for electrical, plumbing and heating-air conditioning jobs.

School officials tell KBOI-2-TV, one of the schools that will be rebuilt is Amity Elementary that has been in use since 1979. The sod, school’s design and its roof has created structural issues.

The bond election is March 14, 2017.

Beat the Cowboys!

  I’m going to make this short and sweet. Boise State has to knock off a couple of Cowboys in order for this to be a HISTORIC season for the Broncos. Boise State is currently ranked by the AP at #17 in the country. With a win over Oklahoma State on Saturday (if they win)…

What’s in a name?

I thought I was original.  Not quite, though.  On Saturday, the Boise State Broncos play the University of Connecticut Huskies at Albertson’s Stadium.  It’s a late game.  Kickoff isn’t until 8:15pm. I generally refer to the team as “Connecticut”.  A lot of other people call it “UConn”.  I’m not a huge fan of nicknames, cliches…
