School officials in Coeur d'Alene are offering a variety of opportunities for community members to become informed and ask questions about the upcoming supplemental maintenance and operations levy that will go before voters on March 12.

There are two "Community Chats" coming up. These events create opportunities for citizens to communicate with board members and district administrators in a casual, informal setting.

The first chat takes place Wednesday at Canfield Middle School, 1800 E. Dalton Ave., Coeur d'Alene. It starts at 5 p.m. with a casual open house to view school bond construction remodel plans. The Community Chat begins at 6 p.m.

A similar event will take place Feb. 25 at Sorensen Magnet School, 310 N. Ninth St., Coeur d'Alene, with an open house at 5 p.m. to view school construction plans and a Community Chat beginning at 6 p.m.

Levy information is also available on the district's website,

District administrators and school board members are seeking out opportunities to present information about the levy to community groups and organizations. Interested groups are encouraged to contact the district by email,

Citizens with questions about the levy can also email their questions to Superintendent Hazel Bauman at or by regular mail, to 311 N. 10th St., Coeur d'Alene, ID 83814. Response time by email will be within 48 hours.

Public service announcements will also be broadcast on CDA TV Channel 19 and the district's website with information about the levy and voter and election information.

    bionic man Posts: 347 are so right....the levy has already been passed. corruption expands throughout idaho. hazel just got her extension, so there is more money going to a worthless employee that takes their achievements on the backs of those who really do the work. once again, we (the taxpayers) get shafted for the benefit of the few. the kids won't see or benefit one cent from this " again " levy. the only ones that see benefits are the administrators.........more money in their pockets and more money for their benefits

    Sorry folks. This election is already a done deal. An off-the-wall-election date at an off-the-wall polling places is guaranteed to produce an "over-whelming" majority vote, about 8 people of 10 who voted approval, especially after the district employees and the PTA got done walking down the hallway to cast their votes at the school and stuff the ballot box. If you think school test scores are going to improve or their is any value in the system, you're dilussional.

    Sure, teach the school district a lesson? The state already spends 20% less per kid than the national average, shouldn't we be teaching the state policy makers a lesson? They're the reason the schools come begging every election. 25% of Idaho's revenue comes from tech, but we aren't going to prepare CdA's top achieving kids for that job opportunity? The district isn't getting the rich, Idaho is diverting state revenue from the schools.

    Idaho's education solution? Make it easier for dumb kids to graduate by lowering the requirements and essentially ignoring the situation.

    Not to mention safety... How many bomb threats etc in the last few years in CdA area schools? Trained guards with metal detector wands are worth it.

    If CdA was Newton I bet this would be an easier sell.

    What we need to do is get rid of the current administration and cut salaries. Then charge the parents of the kids in school the additional levies ( that would cut a bunch of the levies out.) Get someone in that knows how to manage money instead of spend, spend, spend.
    Bob you're right, every year it's more, more, more from the schools. They must be related to the fantastic four on the lies and always wanting more on the backs of the taxpayers, while their pockets get larger.

    All we need to know is that the school districts will keep coming back every election cycle and ask for more and more and more and more money. What we as taxpayers need to have the districts learn about us is that we are not a bottomless pit full of money. VOTE NO!

    And if you renters think your rents will not go up to pay for more property taxes, think again.
