Voters in District 49, one of the state’s fastest growing school districts, overwhelmingly approved ballot question 3B, a mill levy override, by a nearly two-to-one margin according to El Paso County general election results Nov 8, 2016.
This section of D49.org allows community members to track the progress of the four priorities established in the 3B ballot language. A citizen-led committee, which formed to provide oversight after voters approved a mill levy override in 2014, will provide the same accountability for 3B funds.
