Salmon schools superintendent presents case to state panel
Updated On: Dec 20 2012 06:46:05 PM CST
Salmon School District superintendent Joey Foote was in Boise on Tuesday making the district's case for a new school building before a three-member state panel. Under the Cooperative Funding Program, the state will build a new school building if they determine a need and a safety hazard is present. Salmon voters have rejected seven bonds.
Foote said the results of Tuesday's meeting are:
- The state wants additional data in the form of an independent tier-two evaluation of the current school buildings.
- Because they requested it, the state will pay for it.
- The state requested a few more answers from the district itself.
The panel expects to make a decision by mid-February, which would be the deadline for a notice of a bond to be held in March. The decision will still go before voters.
