As many of you may know, the state of Colorado has significantly cut funding to public schools across the state over the past 5 years. Recently, the economy has rebounded; and the state legislature has been able to set aside approximately $1.6 billion in the K-12 State Education Fund. This money is reserved for the sole purpose of supporting your schools. School districts across the state are asking for a portion of that reserve ($275 million) to be given back to the districts to support student learning. I have attached two documents for your review. Please consider contacting the state legislators listed to express your concern over the reduced student funding and to ask them to support the release of reserves for the 2014-15 school year.
