Public schools that provide quality education to their students are an integral part of a healthy, vital community. Here in Boise, ID, the Boise Independent School District is conducting a Facilities Review Process to design and adopt a Facilities Plan that will guide its stewardship of Boise\'s educational facilities for the next decade.
