Investing in Excellence: Conversations about Future Funding for Cherry Creek Schools

Students working.In the Cherry Creek School District, our mission is "to inspire every student to think, to learn, to achieve, to care." To successfully realize that mission, we must invest smartly and responsibly in our schools.

Since its inception by the Colorado Legislature in 2009 following the Great Recession, the Budget Stabilization Factor – otherwise known as the "negative factor" – has caused the district to lose millions of dollars. For the 2018-19 school year alone, the state underfunded CCSD by $40 million.

In order to continue our focus on innovation, our work for inclusive excellence, our focus on recruiting and retaining the highest-quality teachers and our dedication to preparing all students for success in college and career, the district will require new operating funds in the coming years. The alternative is facing a set of drastic reductions that could impact our critical work for students.

The resources on this page are designed to tell the story of how CCSD has approached funding historically and convey the current financial status of the district. The page provides an overview of Superintendent Scott Siegfried's vision for continuing our commitment to excellence, and it offers to links to outside resources that contain important information about the current state of school funding in Colorado. Finally, the page includes details about Amendment 73, a school finance ballot initiative that all Colorado voters will face this November.

With access to the internet comes the availability of material that may not be of educational value or appropriate for students. While at school, CCSD has taken precautions to restrict access to inappropriate or harmful web sites. However, on the internet it is impossible to control all materials and limit all access to information that has no educational value. CCSD firmly believes that the valuable information and the interaction available on the internet far outweigh the possibility that users may procure material that is not consistent with the educational goals of CCSD.
