  • 07-09-14West Ada School District

    At its June 24 meeting, the Board of Trustees approved a recommendation to change the common name of the Meridian School District to West Ada School District.
    The recommendation was based on the changing communities served by the school district.  Today, the district serves the residents who live in the cities of Boise, Eagle, Garden City, Kuna, Meridian, and Star.  About half of the district's 36,000 students live in Meridian.
  • 07-23-14School Board Approves Bond Levy Proposal

    The Board of Trustees approved a proposal to build two middle schools, one elementary school, fund the remodel of Meridian High School, and purchase a future high school and middle school site at last night's regular meeting of the board.  The proposal, which was presented by Lorraine Hand, one of the co-chairs of the bond committee, will go to the voters on August 26, with a total cost of $104 million.  Hand described the committee process, which included meetings throughout the year.  Parents and patrons on the committee studied current enrollment numbers and looked at enrollment trends as well studied levy rates.  "We have real capacity issues at Lake Hazel Middle School and in the elementary schools south of the freeway," Hand told the Board.  "This proposal will allows us to relieve overcrowding but only asks for what we need."
    Because of the nearly 18% increase in the taxable value of property in the district, even with the passage of the bond, the levy rate next year is calculated to drop to $399 per $100,000 of taxable value.
