Our #1 Goal: Great Schools in Every Neighborhood
In 2016, voters approved bond and mill funding measures for students in Denver Public Schools, agreeing to invest $572 million in bond funding to build and improve school buildings, and $56.6 million in operating dollars to support proven initiatives such as early literacy and social-emotional supports. We went straight to work with the funds approved by Denver residents and have made great progress with building improvements and with added supports for students and teachers.
Four years later, the DPS the Board of Education is considering asking voters to approve a 2020 bond and mill levy, which would provide even more support to Denver schools, students, and teachers. On June 8, 2020 the Community Planning and Advisory Committee presented the final set of bond/mill funding recommendations to the Board of Education. See the full presentation here.
