Dear Parents, Guardians, and Patrons,
Each year, the Salmon River Joint School District has asked patrons to support the schools by voting for a supplemental levy to bridge the gap between what is distributed from the state and federal allocations and the funds needed to provide a quality education and extracurricular activities. The levy is voted on and replaced each year. This is not an additional levy.
At a special board meeting on May 9, 2022, the Salmon River Board of Trustees voted to suspend the supplemental levy vote for May 17, 2022 until August 30, 2022. A clerical error on the ballot that listed the tax cost per thousand instead of per one hundred thousand was found last week. This would reduce the levy amount to $4,950 instead of the $495,000 needed to continue the programs and operational costs of our district and schools. The law will not allow the ballot to be altered to the correct tax rate. Therefore, the board voted to withdraw the ballot for May 17th and will ask patrons to support the levy on August 30th, which is the next available election date. Though voters will see the levy listed, it will be crossed out. Those ballots already voted will be counted, but the results are not reported.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact Michelle Hollon at the district office 208-630-6027 email@example.com or Trish Simonson firstname.lastname@example.org.

Salmon River JSD 243 Mission Statement
We will strive to inspire and empower every student to achieve their fullest potential as an individual, to build skills and attitudes necessary to become successful citizens with personal integrity in an ever changing society.
The Salmon River Board of Trustees will hold a special board meeting on Monday, May 9, 2022 at 7:00 PM in the district office to discuss the supplemental levy.
Dear Staff, Parents, and Community Members,
The district was recently notified that a clerical error has occurred on the Salmon River Joint School District’s supplemental levy ballot. The law prohibits any changes to the ballot once the due date has passed. Therefore, the Salmon River Joint School Board of Trustees will be holding a special board meeting to discuss options, including running the levy election at a later date. An agenda with the date and time of the special meeting will be posted as soon as possible.

One of the pieces of Idaho’s new school accountability system is a parent survey. This survey asks for your input on several topics to help measure how our schools are doing in meeting your needs.
To access the survey, visit https://eprovesurveys.advanc-ed.org/surveys/#/action/184180/p31609
Then pick your student’s school from the drop-down menu. The survey should take 5-10 minutes to complete and your responses are anonymous. You can submit your survey until April 1, 2022.
We will use these survey responses to identify opportunities to maximize satisfaction, engagement, and communication. Additionally, the state will report the results and the number of responses on Idaho’s new school report card (https://idahoschools.org/).
Thank you for participating in the survey. If you have any questions, please contact your school’s Principal.
Yours in learning,
Parents, we want to hear from you!
