Laura Cusenbary

— Hayden School District Super­intendent Mike Luppes will provide the School Board with a presentation tonight about the campaign efforts of Citizens for Ref­erendum 3B, a committee created to promote the district’s proposed property tax increase.

Luppes, who is a member of the group, said Citizens for Referendum 3B has given presentations to local groups saying that approval of the question to generate an additional $321,473 annually for five years would allow the district to keep class sizes small, preserve faculty and staff compensation levels and maintain existing facilities and equipment. He said Citizens for Referendum 3B also intends to make a presentation to the Hayden Town Council on Thursday night.

The School Board meeting is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. in Room 8 at Hayden Middle School. Also on the agenda is the School Board’s consideration of purchasing new doors to meet fire safety requirements, the district’s snow removal bid, and a half-time middle school basketball coach and high school boys basketball volunteer coaches.
