Memorial Day

All our schools and district office will be closed Monday May 28 for Memorial Day. Any transcript requests received during that time will be processed when the office re-opens on Tuesday May 29. We hope all our students, parents, patrons and staff have a nice holiday. 

 

Working with staff, our design team and construction manager, board members have spent the last few months doing outreach and looking for ways to reduce the price tag of the bond to update and modernize our high schools. They revisited the plans, focused on the essentials such as modern teaching spaces and developed a new bond proposal that patrons will consider on Aug 28. The new proposal includes:

  • ​​A base bond of $86.2 million to make extensive renovations to Skyline High School, construct a new Idaho Falls High School and begin converting the current Idaho Falls into a Career-Technical Education Center.

  • Patrons also would have the opportunity to vote separately on adding $13.3 million in amenities such as a district performing arts center at Skyline High School and an innovative space at the new Idaho Falls High School that could be used for an auxiliary gym, arts performances and more.

  • If voters approve the bond, the district will use reserve moneys to pay for some additional projects such as an outdoor track at the new Idaho Falls High School and an indoor track at Skyline High School. The district also is planning to use additional reserves to make site improvements at Skyline High School that will improve safety and traffic flow at the school.

Language arts

District 91 is adopting new English-Language Arts (Reading and Writing) curriculum for grades 4-8.  EL Education’s English-Language Arts Modules has been recommended for use in grades 4-6, while My Perspectives by Pearson has been recommended for use in grades 7-8.  Both programs were recommended because of their strong alignment to Idaho’s English-Language Arts standards adopted in 2011.  Both programs provide students with increasingly complex text that students are expected to read and analyze. Learn more.  This email address is being protected from spambots.
