Express Staff Writer

The Blaine County School District has scheduled three public information meetings concerning a proposed $59.8 million plant facilities levy.

The first is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 5, from 6-7 p.m. at Hemingway Elementary School in Ketchum. It will be followed by a meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 6, from 6-7 p.m. at Wood River Middle School in Hailey.

District officials will discuss the proposed levy at Carey School on Friday, Oct. 16, from 5:45-6:45 p.m.

The district has also scheduled technology demonstrations relevant to the proposed levy.

On Monday, Sept. 28, from 9:30-10:30 a.m., Promethean board technology will be demonstrated at the Community Campus in Hailey. A second demonstration is scheduled at the Community Campus on Wednesday, Sept. 30 from 9:30-10:30 a.m. Promethean boards are large interactive display boards with audio and video capabilities for classroom learning. The district would like to use some of the levy money to buy more of them.

The school district will present information on the "environmental impacts of the proposed plant facilities levy" Thursday, Oct. 15, at 6 p.m. at the Community Campus.

The district is proposing the levy to generate revenue over a 10-year period for technology enhancements, safety and security upgrades, new construction and facility improvements.

Blaine County's electorate will vote on the proposed levy on Thursday, Oct. 29, from noon until 9 p.m. Voting will take place at Bellevue, Hailey, Hemingway and Woodside elementary schools and at Carey School.
