On March 14, voters in the Nampa School District will have an opportunity to approve a $210.2 million bond for school facilities. It sounds like a lot of money, and it is. But so is the need.

For those who don’t visit our buildings regularly, that need may not be obvious. Unlike many of our neighboring districts, Nampa’s student population isn’t growing, at least not alarmingly. We still have plenty of room in our classrooms and some schools are even under-utilized. But our need for improved student opportunities is growing — exponentially.

Dr. Gregg Russell is interim superintendent for the Nampa School District, a district of choice offering a variety of open-enrollment options including schools focused on dual-language, STEM, arts, mastery-based, and project-based learning. The district also provides a fully online school and a robust career-technical education program. Learn more at
