Override Revenue

Voters living in a school district can choose to approve higher taxes to support their local schools.  These are dollars raised locally and used locally.  Voters in many school districts have voted in favor of raising taxes to support their schools.  Here is a comparison of override dollars, on a per student basis, voters have approved in our neighboring communities.  To put this in perspective, a classroom of 25 students in Fort Collins has an additional $18,550 of funding compared to St. Vrain.

    So, the Creighton blog has become yet another outlet for district propaganda. Too bad.
    John, I notice that the district never publishes the amount that the St. Vrain taxpayers spent on bonds for the district, compared to the amount that other districts have spent. Will you be publishing that on your blog?
    Also, I notice that the district never points out that charter schools and private schools manage to get better results with less money overall. Will you be publishing that on your blog?
