Woodland Park school district pursues mill levy override

August 26, 2011

The Woodland Park School District RE-2 school board on Wednesday unanimously approved a resolution to place a mill levy override question on the Nov. 1.

The mill levy override was one of several options discussed in recent years in the district.

The override of 3.8 mills would cost on average $2.50 per $100,000 of home value per month in 2012, generating an estimated $950,000.

The money would enable the district to restore some recent cuts, address critical facility maintenance issues, and purchase technology and curriculum materials.

Superintendent Jed Bowman said the district has cut $3.3 million over two years.

"Because of solid fiscal management, most of the cuts have not significantly impacted student learning," he said. "However, this year we are starting to see class sizes increase and classroom support decrease.”

Woodland Park School District has nearly 2,700 students and serves the communities of Woodland Park, Divide and Florissant, and northern Teller County.
