Planning for the Future
Why more schools?
In the last year alone, Weld RE-4’s enrollment has already increased by 750 students, leaving every school but one in the district over capacity.
What is needed?
The school district is proposing a bond initiative that will give voters the chance to approve the bond and a mill levy override in order to build two new elementary schools, provide much needed updates to every existing school, construct a new building for Windsor Middle School, and expand Severance Middle School.
How do bonds and mill levy overrides work?
Both utilize a small increase in property taxes to fund their objectives. However, they are each used for different purposes. Bonds are used to pay for tangible objects and are one-time investments for projects such as building schools, renovating older schools and classrooms, and buying books and computers. Mill levy overrides provide ongoing funds for operational costs, including teacher and faculty salaries.
How do we pass the initiative?
The initiative will be on the ballot this November. There are many ways to help the campaign through volunteering, donating, and spreading the word. Please connect with the campaign so we can work together to build these schools.
