5A is a $33 million mill levy override and passed by a strong 55% to 45% margin. 5A resources will allow Jeffco to be more competitive with surrounding districts in our compensation levels and services we offer our students. Directly supporting our students, with 5A funds we will be able to make significant investments in school safety and security, career and technical education, curricular materials, and early childhood education.
5B is a $567 million bond package that turned out to be the ballot question “that could!” On election night, 5B was down around 9,000 votes. However, as more votes were counted, the “yes” votes on 5B just kept coming in and ultimately passed as well. 5B will allow for significant improvements to buildings all across Jeffco, including reinvesting in our established communities, and adding new facilities for learning in our county, and addressing growth areas in Jeffco.
