North Idaho school levy election results

Several North Idaho school districts are asking voters to approve tax levies in the March 9 special election.

NORTH IDAHO -- Ten school districts in North Idaho had elections on March 9, where voters weighed in on levies that help fund school districts.

Some of the levies cross multiple counties. KREM has factored those voter returns into election results. 

The first round of results has come in for most counties. No races have been definitively called.

KREM also has the latest results on KREM.com/elections.

School levies are homeowner taxes that support school districts. The levy proposals usually slightly alter the amount homeowners are taxed, depending on how much money districts request for staffing or projects. The details of how each levy would support schools is listed in the ballot and in this article below.

Idaho also has a homeowner tax exemption that reduces the amount homeowners are taxed. The exemption removes 50% of the property value and up to one acre of land from property tax, up to $100,000. So if someone owns a home worth $400,000, they would only pay tax on $300,000.
