Bond and Levy History

A long history of community support

The Kuna School District asks voters to decide on bonds to build/remodel buildings and levies to help fund the maintenance and operations of our schools. Bonds require 60 percent approval and levies require 50 percent approval from voters to pass.

Investing in Kuna's Future

Student enrollment in Kuna schools is at an all time high of 5,400 students! Our secondary schools are OVER capacity and three of our elementary schools are AT capacity. In the next 3 years with the current growth rate, we expect an additional 700 new students.
