Kalispell school administrators started their push for voters to approve three possible levies on the May ballot. Nothing?s certain yet, but officials explained possible plans to the Kalispell Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday.

Two of those levies would pay for operations, like teachers? salaries. The other would fund general building maintenance for the high schools.

Board members have until mid-April to decide on the cost of the levies.

?A school district is like any other organization facing inflationary pressure over time,? said board member Brad Eldredge. ?The legislature increased funding for schools but not at what I would consider an adequate level last session, so we have to go to the local tax payer to ask them to help us make up the difference.?
