JEFFCO BUILDS

Thank you, Jeffco Voters!

In the fall of 2018, Jeffco voters approved ballot measure 5B — a $567 million bond investment for needed capital improvement projects at schools across the district. This investment allows us to provide our students and educators safe, high-quality learning environments.

Specifically, Jeffco Public Schools will use these funds to:
• Add and expand career/technical education facilities;
• Upgrade safety and security equipment in school buildings;
• Repair, renovate, equip, and reconstruct buildings to ensure our schools are safe, efficient and accessible to all students, including those with disabilities; and
• Construct, furnish, equip, and support needs in buildings and classrooms at all schools in the district, including charters.

Over the next six years, we will:
• Build three new schools; 
• Replace three existing schools with new buildings (demolition of an older facility and construction of a new building on the current site); and
• Complete 23 major additions to existing school facilities.

Additionally, significant improvements will come to all schools across the district. Including safety and security updates.


The importance of bringing the pre-1980s high schools up to par with newer buildings was emphasized to the community and will be the first to begin construction. Facilities that have received little improvement in the past were also given higher priority. Projects at newer facilities were placed later on the timeline so that current structures and systems would continue to be utilized, but immediate needs that occur over the next six years will be addressed.

Additionally, smaller projects were grouped together for cost-saving purposes: type of work within an articulation area and smaller renovations were packaged together so they can be completed by a single contractor. This practice saves money and provides us a better value. Finally, projects were determined by cash flow, meaning how much the projects will cost and how much can be spent over a specified period. However, every articulation area has a project that will begin in 2019.
