WIIFM Booklet 2018Bond UPDATE 2020 FINAL - Flipbook - Page 1
AN UPDATE ON OUR PROGRESS
In the fall of 2018, Jeffco voters approved ballot measure 5B — a $567 million bond investment for needed capital improvement
projects at schools across the district. This investment allows us to provide our students and educators safe, high-quality learning
Specifically, Jeffco Public Schools will use these funds to:
Add and expand career/technical education facilities;
Upgrade safety and security equipment in school buildings;
Build additions to many of our High Schools, Middle Schools and Elementary Schools;
Repair, renovate, equip, and reconstruct buildings to ensure our schools are safe, efficient, and accessible to all students, including
those with disabilities; and
Construct, furnish, equip, and support needs in buildings and classrooms at all schools in the district, including charters.
Over the past two years, significant progress has been made across the district. This document gives our community an update on
this progress and a snapshot of how completed project costs aligned with their initial budgeted amount.
We are committed to being good stewards of public funds, but outside factors such as a competitive construction market and
unforeseen project cost all significantly contribute to the final project amount. The finances of projects are closely overseen by financial
experts at the district and approved by the Capital Asset Advisory Committee and the Board of Education.
