— Representatives from the South Routt and Hayden school districts plan to attend tonight's Education Fund Board meeting to discuss sharing in future half-cent sales tax dollars.

South Routt Superintendent Kelly Reed and Hayden Superintendent Mike Luppes attended a meeting with Routt County commissioners on March 20 where Reed gave a presentation on his desire for South Routt to be considered as a recipient of half-cent sales tax dollars. Luppes joined the conversation.

Tonight's presentation "will be very much like what I did with county commissioners," Reed said.

Steamboat Springs voters approved the half-cent sales tax for education in 1993. The tax, which is a Steamboat Springs city tax, expires in 2009. The Fund Board administers the half-cent sales tax through gifts to the Steamboat Springs School District.

The Fund Board is planning to administer a survey this spring to gauge public interest in sharing funds with neighboring districts.

"I think the biggest thing right now is to be included in that survey to find out what the Steamboat citizens so desire," Luppes said.

The Fund Board also will hear the second reading from the Capital Commission on its funding requests for the 2007-08 school year.

Good luck getting the tax passed when it comes up for a vote next year if the money is leaving the district.

with utterly predictable results, no doubt.

it is long past time for the Steamboat Springs school district to begin behaving in a manner that is inclusive, rather than exclusive. if the tax doesn't get passed when it comes up for a vote next year (because, god forbid, they might have to share with other far less privileged school districts in the county) just as well, i say.
