Voters say yes to 3A and 3B
Voters in the Cherry Creek School District passed ballot issues 3A and 3B giving the district critical funds needed to fund academic programs, maintain existing schools, and build additions to Cherokee Trail and Grandview high schools to accommodate enrollment growth.

“We are very grateful that the community recognized the need to provide resources to continue our mission of excellence for all students,” Board of Education President Jennifer Churchfield said. “As we have in the past, we will keep our promise to provide the best educational opportunities for the children in this district.”

Issue 3A, the budget override for operating expenses, will allow the district to:

  • Maintain class size
  • Provide curriculum and instruction necessary for success in college and the workplace
  • Continue the district's commitment to academic excellence
  • Ensure technology and instruction for student success in the 21st century

 “We have a lot of work ahead of us,” Superintendent Mary Chesley said. “These funds will enable us to keep up with advancing technology needed to prepare students for success in college, the workplace and beyond.

The passage of 3B authorizes the district to sell $125 million in bonds for renovations and new school construction, including:

  • Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) focused classrooms
  • Renovations throughout the district and additions to Cherokee Trail High School and Grandview High School to accommodate growth
  • Essential technology, including Smartboards and updated computers
  • Upgraded safety and security systems for all schools
