2014 Bond & Mill Levy Overview
With one of the fastest growing rates in Colorado, increased pressure on existing schools is limiting opportunities for students. At the same time, District 49 is the second-lowest funded district in Colorado, so we are especially vulnerable to cuts in state funding over the past four years. The bond package will provide the school space we need to ensure that our college-bound graduates are well prepared for future study and that our students entering the workforce are just as well prepared with practical, vocational skills. The first districtwide priority of the bond package is to expand the size and extend the usable life of existing buildings to make sure we squeeze the maximum value out of existing facilities.Our current bond package will increase capacity at five existing buildings and add three new schools.For updates ahead of the November ballot, please keep visiting this page.
Capital Planning Committee Overview
District 49 coordinates a Capital Planning Committee, a group of staff and community members who represent each of District 49's zones. The group provides feedback on issues ranging from long range planning and capital needs to planning for bonds and forecasting facility projects for future educational programs.Capital Planning Committee members represent a specific area of District 49, but they're also responsible for making decisions for the entire district. Each member is required to serve a minimum one-year commitment (maximum two years). Though our Capital Planning Committee membership is full, we invite you to attend any of our meetings. If you would like to be considered for future vacancies, please complete an application. Call our district strategic planner with any questions at 719.494.8997.
