An Overview of the Mill and Bond

In November, Jeffco schools will ask its community to approve a mill and bond package. 

3A, the mill, will provide Jeffco schools with $33 million to improve its operations to support students’ needs.

  • The mill will cover any cuts from state funding.
  • Beyond that, the mill will address three priority needs: attracting and retaining great teachers, improving school security and safety resources, and expanding student access to STEM (Science Technology, Engineering and Math).

3B, the bond, will address Jeffco’s pressing facilities needs.  $535 million will be used to replace several schools, and address critical maintenance needs at 110 schools.

  • Jeffco’s average building age is over 45 years old.  The bond will help build eight new schools and renovate several others.  
  • Buildings that aren’t being replaced will have maintenance work done on them.  Most of these projects focus on improving safety and security.  
  • The remaining projects mostly focus on replacing obsolete and aging infrastructure that directly affects a students’ learning environment.  This includes vital repairs to roofing, electrical system maintenance, and HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and air conditioning) replacements. 

The average cost to Jeffco homeowners will roughly be $11.70/ month.
