This measure sought to increase the current school levy by $1.7 million a year for a continuing period of time in order to cover budget shortfalls and pay for general fund needs in the district.[2] School officials noted that continued cuts over the years have made this increase necessary, without additional funds the district would not be able to continue its current programs. If approved, around $2.85 a month for every $100,000 of assessed property value will be added to the local tax rate.[3]

Current Statewide

A 2013 statewide measure, Amendment 66, would authorize Colorado to increase taxes with an expected revenue increase of $950 million for school funding.[4]
