PTO Meeting Wednesday, October 13th at 2:45 pm, Douglass Library

Kathy Gebhart, BVSD School Board Member, will be in attendance at the PTO meeting scheduled for Wednesday, October 13th at 2:45 pm in the library. She will be able to handle questions and discuss Measure 3A which will be on the ballot in November.

Measure 3A: 

Boulder Valley School District Ballot Measure Question 3A on the 2016 ballot asks whether voters will authorize a mill levy in BVSD as provided for in state statute. Because the State of Colorado has, for several years, been unable to adequately fund public education, it’s currently up to local communities to fund these needs.  In 2016, the Colorado state legislature granted local school districts the authority to ask voters to fund a new mill levy dedicated to providing for various operational and technology expenses. By freeing up general fund dollars presently committed to operational and technology expenses.  The mill levy will, if passed, initially raise $10 million by adding approximately 1.7 mills to BVSD taxpayers' property tax calculation. The BVSD Board of Education would also be granted the authority to increase the mill levy by no more than one mill per year to a maximum of four mills.
