  • Announcements

    • How Do I Know If School Is Closed? Parents will be alerted of school closers by phone, text, and e-mail early in the morning if there is a closer.
      During the winter months, the district notifies local TV and radio stations regarding school closure or delay. The district's hotline will provide regular updates on the status of school closures, and is a very efficient way, in partnership with the District's Web site, to check the status of closures. The Snow Hotline can be reached at 208.667.0784. The Transportation Director is out on the roads early in the morning to evaluate road conditions and also takes into account current and immediate weather forecasts. The Superintendent makes the final decision to close school - in most cases by 5:30 a.m. The district realizes not everyone will agree with all closures but our staff makes every effort to come to the best decision possible as student and staff safety is of paramount importance.

March 10 Maintenance & Operations Levy

On March 10th the Coeur d’Alene School District will ask voters to consider approving a two-year Maintenance and Operations (M&O) Levy of $15M. The current M&O levy expires in June 2015. 

Local taxpayer support of public schools has become essential. One out of five dollars the district spends on educating our students comes from the local levy.  Levy dollars fund the day-to-day operations of the district’s educational programs, bridging the gap between the funding provided by the state and the cost of meeting the educational needs of our studentsThis spring’s request will include a multi-year plan to reduce class sizes and hire more teachers. The levy request will also include purchasing curriculum materials and textbooks for students.Want to learn more about the upcoming March 10th Maintenance & Operations levy?
