various Colorado images

Amendment 73, Great Schools Thriving Communities, is a statewide effort to raise funds for PK-12 public education. 

The Jeffco Public Schools Board of Education passed a resolution in support of Initiative 93, Great Schools, Thriving Communities, ballot initiative on April 5, 2018. Initiative 93 is now known as Amendment 73 since signatures have been turned in.

A nonprofit K-12 public education advocacy group is coordinating this effort.

The organization recently turned in signatures. About 98,500 signatures from registered voters from across the state are needed to get on the November ballot.

Amendment 73 is a proposed income tax that would affect incomes above $150,000/year and "C"Corporations.

Funding would support PreK-12 public education in Colorado.


If Amendment 73 makes the ballot and passes, Jeffco Public Schools would receive a significant increase in funding, possibly up to $1,600 more per student (~$135,000,000 for 86,000 students).
