Community Campaign for Grade-Level Reading: Third Grade Reading Success Matters!

The National Campaign for Grade Level Reading is sponsoring a series of community campaigns on the importance of third grade reading proficiency to promote a collaborative approach to the issue, bringing the education system, libraries, business leaders, social service agencies, and policy-makers together cohesively to develop an action plan.  Events will be held in Pocatello, Twin Falls, and Boise on April 11th and 12th.  Full details and registration information is available at this link.

Competing Business Personal Property Tax Bills

There are now two pieces of legislation printed on the issue of the repeal of the Business Personal Property Tax. One, RS22194, is from the Idaho Association of Commerce of Industry (IACI). They are attempting a phased out full repeal of this tax with what they describe as “full” replacement dollars. IACI seems to have a different idea about what full replacement means than that of ISBA. For IACI, full replacement means holding school districts harmless for the term of their current supplemental levy (1-2 years). After that, school districts would be on their own.
