COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho - Supporters of a planned professional technical high school in northern Idaho hope a bill slated for the 2011 Idaho Legislature will expedite the project.
Post Falls schools superintendent Jerry Keene told the Coeur d'Alene Press he's hoping construction of the Kootenai Technical Education Campus can begin in 2011, not 2012.
Voters in the Post Falls, Coeur d'Alene and Lakeland school districts in August approved financing to construct the $9.5 million school in Rathdrum.
But currently, they can't break ground on the project until all the money is in the bank.
Coeur d'Alene Republican Sen. John Goedde plans to sponsor legislation during the session that starts in January that would allow the three districts to start sooner - provided there's no interest being paid yet.
