In 2010, voters of Poudre School District approved a mill levy and bond issue. Bond funds are one-time dollars that will allow the district to maintain excellent facilities critical to providing a positive learning environment. Schools receive mill levy funds each year to support student instruction in a variety of ways.
2010 Mill Levy Use Plan
The mill levy will provide $16 million annually to meet expenses of the district caused by state revenue cutbacks, including:
- Increase budget allocations to schools to maintain excellence for student academic achievement and interventions, and provide resources for preschool, whole child, career awareness and wellness.
- Restore a portion of staff positions eliminated by state revenue cutbacks and limit class size increases
- Refresh technology and provide technology support for student learning opportunities
- Provide skills for workforce development and college readiness to support economic growth
