From the Board Chair:
Dear Breckenridge Public Schools Community,
We have a lot to be proud of! Students are learning! Our school district is in good financial standing, enrollment is steady, and our operating expenses, revenue, and fund balance are stable. We have excellent community support for our schools and our students with 66% of district residents rating the district between 7 and 10 on a scale of 1 to 10.
Our current situation includes the expiration of our operating levy and significant facility challenges due to their age. To address these issues, the school board voted unanimously to hold a three-question referendum on November 2, 2021.
This step is one of the last in a several year process that included a facilities analysis, a community task force, community meetings, a public opinion survey, and a great many meetings by the school board to discern the right approach to address aging school facilities.
The survey found 70% of residents agreed that the district should explore a bond referendum to update schools with respondents favoring a new PreK-12 campus on a new site with a community center over three other options.
Your ballot will have three questions:
This website aims to share information about the needs, plans, and situation currently facing our school district. The district is required by law to only provide factual information and cannot advocate for or against any referendum questions. The goal of this website is to provide the necessary information for voters to make an informed decision.
If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Superintendent Brad Strand at 218-643-6822 or email@example.com
