Letter to the editor: Bear Creek would benefit from bond

Posted

As the parent of a Bear Creek High School graduate and a current Bear Creek student, I encourage voters to vote yes on 5A and 5B, the mill and bond for JEFFCO schools. Both the mill and bond will fund school safety improvements like additional mental health support and suicide prevention programming in our schools.
In addition, 5A and 5B will expand educational options like STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and technical education. The mill and bond include the addition of a second Warren Tech (our premiere vocational tech program)location so that students in south Jeffco have easier access to the many popular programs offered.
Issue 5B will also provide funding for major renovations at older schools. Both of my children have benefited from learning in state-of-the-art science labs and classrooms at Bear Creek, and 5B will provide funding to update labs and classrooms in Jeffco’s older high schools as well.
Issue 5A will also help make sure the best teachers are recruited and retained in Jeffco. Too often, great teachers choose to drive to Littleton, Cherry Creek or Denver where they can make as much as $10,000 more than in Jeffco. Voting yes on the mill will provide money to make salaries more competitive. I truly believe that quality teachers are the critical component to quality schools.
Please join me in voting yes on Jeffco Schools 5A and 5B on Nov. 6.
Jodi Lundin,
Lakewood
