SCHOOLS: A student’s support

Print Article

Although Iím not old enough to vote yet, I would like to encourage those of you who can to vote for the 2017 Coeur díAlene School District Supplemental Levy. As a student of Lake City High School, I have directly benefited from the previous levies. One focus has been to reduce class sizes. At Lake City, the need for this was in the science department, and I am currently in a biology class that only has 15 students. In a class this size, students are able to participate more. During class discussions everyone is able to talk and ask questions of the teacher to make sure they understand the material. Also, with a class this size we are able to cover the basic material quicker which leaves time to go more in depth about the topics we are learning and interested in.

Students in the Coeur díAlene School District benefit in many ways from the Supplemental Levy. This is just one of many examples. Please vote yes on March 14 for students.
