NAMPA -- Late Monday afternoon the Nampa School District announced that Superintendent Gary Larsen had submitted his resignation.

The Nampa Board of Trustees will hold a special meeting Tuesday at 7 p.m. to consider the resignation. Trustee Dale Wheeler says portions of the meeting concerning Gary Larsen's resignation will not be open to the public.

In August, the Nampa School District discovered a budgeting error that resulted in a $2.8 million shortfall. District spokeswoman Allison Westfall told the Idaho Press-Tribune that Larsen's resignation is connected to the district's financial issues and that the problem may be worse than they thought.

Two errors led to the shortfall -- incoming funds were overestimated and some revenue was counted twice.

The district's budget manager resigned in January partially because of that mistake.
