On August 20, 2020, the DPS Board of Education voted on a resolution to adopt a bond and mill levy proposal for the November 2020 ballot. Denver voters will be asked to consider two measures: a $795 million bond for building and maintaining schools, and a $32 million Debt-Free Schools ballot initiative that would provide $32 million in school-based investment priorities.

If approved, the bond proposal will require an increase in the district’s bond debt but is not expected to raise property taxes based on current and forecasted property values. The mill levy proposal, if approved, is expected to cost about $4.25 per month or $51 annually for owners of a Denver home valued at the median $465,000.
