In 2010, the voters of Poudre School District approved a mill levy and bond issue. Bond funds are one-time dollars that will allow the district to maintain excellent facilities critical to providing a positive learning environment. Schools receive mill levy funds each year to support student instruction in a variety of ways.
“Our students are truly the beneficiaries of a great community-led effort to improve educational opportunities in PSD. This vote supports students and their future. The district expresses heartfelt thanks to our community for passing the mill levy and bond issue, acknowledging the importance of our children’s education, even in this difficult economic environment,” says Dr. Jerry Wilson, Superintendent of Schools

- Provide skills for workforce development and college readiness to support economic growth, and
