Superintendent Mark Gabrylczyk presented the need of passage of the supplemental levy in the Snake River School District to board trustees on Wednesday.
"In the past few years, the Snake River School District has received $1.1 million less from the legislature," he said.
Snake River is not the only school district that has suffered financially.
"Eighty-five out of the 115 school districts in Idaho have supplemental levies," Gabrylczyk said.

We are going to go over there and do the best that we can and try to bring home another trophy."
