2016 had a record number of local school funding measures on the ballot. We are fortunate that 3A, the bond supporting school buildings, passed in the St. Vrain Valley, but many Colorado school districts, including our neighbors to the north, did not receive the same voter support. Funding inequities between school districts will continue to grow, and this is exactly why we keep an eye on what is happening to education funding at the state level–where this issue must ultimately be addressed.
Grassroots St. Vrain will be meeting with the new and returning legislators in the coming weeks, and will be watching education funding related issues as they come up in the Legislature. Decisions made at the state level impact students in our classrooms. If you are interested in participating in the GSV meetings with legislators or joining us at the Capitol, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you know which legislators represent your school?
Our vision is a St. Vrain Valley community that is informed about education funding in Colorado and empowered to take action for the benefit of our schools.
- To communicate current facts about education funding in Colorado
- To promote informed decision-making on both state and local school finance issues
- To provide opportunities for participation in education funding decisions
…that impact the school communities of the St. Vrain Valley
