Jeffco BOE votes on official ballot language

Measures will be listed as 5A and 5B

Posted

The Jefferson County Board of Education voted unanimously Sept. 6 on the ballot language for the bond and mill levy override voters will weigh in on during the November elected.

Last month the board voted to place a $567 million bond and a mill levy override of $33 million a year on the November ballot. Superintendent Jason Glass announced the following day that the measures would be listed as 5A for the mill levy, and 5B for the bond.

The bond money would be used for facilities, building some new schools, making repairs, building additions and updating infrastructure.

The mill levy would be used to fund ongoing costs, primarily used to make teacher pay more competitive but also for classroom supplies, school safety measures and expanding the district’s full-day kindergarten program.

The last mill levy override and bond issue supported by Jefferson County voters occurred in 2012.

More information about the bond and mill levy are available on the district’s website www.jeffcopublicschools.org/ .
