School Funding Issues

Jefferson County Public Schools, like all Colorado School Districts, is facing major budget cuts in upcoming years due to decreased state funding.  Jeffco Schools has cut $78 million since 2009 and an addition $45 million is proposed for cuts for the 2013/2014 school year which will have a great impact on the students at Hackberry Hill.  A community grassroots organization, Citizens for Jeffco Schools, was formed to request that our Board of Education put a mill and bond on the November 2012 ballot.  Our Board of Education voted to do so in June 2012.

In May 2012, the Hackberry Hill PTA passed a Resolution to join in the effort and to support the mill and bond.  Should you wish to volunteer at our school, elsewhere in the area, or simply want to learn more, please contact Shawna Fritzler at fritzlersm@aol.com.  The Hackberry Hill PTA encourages you to learn more about 3A and 3B - visit www.supportjeffcoschools.com to learn more as well as to sign up to volunteer.
