Participate in the Budget Process

Jeffco Public Schools has a long history of gathering community input about funding priorities. As the Board of Education begins the budgeting process for the 2014-15 school year, this tradition will continue. Parents, students, community members and district staff are being asked to read a letter to stakeholders, which describes the board’s goals, and then provide feedback about the budget by completing an online survey.  The board will also be hosting a series of community meetings to gain more public participation in the budget process.

The 2014-15 school  year budget must be finalized by June 2014.

  • Read the letter to stakeholders here.
  • Take the community budget survey here.
