KUNA, Idaho (KBOI) - The Kuna School Board heard from residents that would like to see a nearly $3.2 million dollar school levy on the May ballot after it failed in March, but those against said voters had already spoken.

The levy failed by less than 100 votes. Some that spoke during the meeting believe that was due to low voter turnout, and what they called misinformation.

"This time I will make it my personal mission to see to it that every last voter has comprehensive and accurate information," said Kuna resident Amber Abercrombie.

Some residents like Cory Tanner think money might not solve the problems, and notes that voters already said no.

"Just because we throw money at something more money 3.9 million dollars doesn't make it successful it will not make it successful."

A 6th grader did speak during the meeting and talked about how the levy helped the district hire another teacher. She notes that at the time her teacher was doing a joint 4th/5th grade class because of cuts.
