The Idaho Falls Board of Trustees is asking patrons in November to consider a $110 million bond to update and modernize Skyline and Idaho Falls high schools. Plans call for a top-to-bottom renovation of Skyline High School and the construction of a new school on 49th South near Taylorview to replace Idaho Falls High School. The existing IFHS building will be repurposed. It would become home to all D91’s career technical programs, the district’s administrative offices and fill other community needs. There will be no tax rate increase because of growth and rising property values in D91. See IFHS ReBuild. See SHS ReDesign. See current SHS vs new SHS Learn More. Questions? Send them to us.
