School election results for March 9

EAST IDAHO (KIFI) - Four school board members will keep their positions after an attempt to remove them failed.

Pocatello-Chubbuck School District board trustees Jackie Cranor, Janie Gebhardt, and Dave Mattson were up for recall because of their handling of the hybrid schedule and the changing of the Pocatello Indians mascot.

Idaho Falls School District 91 board member Elizabeth Cogliati also will keep her seat.

While many of the supplemental levies were approved by voters, Bonneville School District 93's supplemental levy and plant facilities levy failed.

Meanwhile, two school bonds did pass in Bingham County. The Blackfoot School District will use the bond to replace Stoddard Elementary and create an atrium at Blackfoot High School. The Shelley School District will use their bond to renovate Goodsell Elementary school and other repairs at buildings in the school district.

Below is a breakdown and the results for each school district.

For definition in simple terms, a supplemental levy is additional funding for a school district they don't receive from state education funding. Much of the funds go towards the maintenance of school buildings, extracurricular activities, salaries for staff, utilities, and other items the school district determines.

A supplemental levy requires a simple majority for approval. School Bonds usually require a two-thirds majority, and the majority needed to pass a plant facility levy varies depending on a complicated formula established by the legislature.
