Missoula schools plan to ask voters to pay more for two existing technology levies in May.

Superintendent Alex Apostle is set to discuss it Tuesday morning at his cabinet meeting.

The district has two permanent technology levies in place.  The proposal would add new taxes, part of the details still being worked out.

The Missoula school board is under fire after giving superintendent Alex Apostle a 13-percent raise and a three-year deal worth $200,000 at its end.

We followed up on a "no-confidence" vote teachers and other union school employees will take this week.

The measure is aimed at the six school board members who voted for Apostle's raise.

The union told us ballots will be circulated this week and the results available next week.
