Vote YES on August 28th
ON AUGUST 28TH, residents of District 91 have a unique opportunity.
By voting “YES” on the proposed bond, we can build a brand new Idaho Falls High School near Taylorview Junior High on 49th South. And, we can do a top-to-bottom renovation of Skyline High School. Best of all, we don’t need to raise the tax levy rate because of District 91’s financial strength, rising property values, and rapid growth.
To engage students in activities that deepen critical thinking, collaboration, and creativity, we need more space and flexibility in our instructional spaces, allowing for greater diversity in learning activities. For example, when students work in small groups to analyze or design, they need a little separation – something that is difficult to do in a small room full of desk rows or a room with fixed furniture. Similarly, we currently have no good spaces for two teachers to hold classes together – whether to host a guest speaker or to work on an interdisciplinary project. Also, our students have few places to meet and work outside of the classroom; they are either in our library when it is available or sitting in our hallways and stairwells.”
