Colorado public schools receive funding from a variety of sources. However, most revenues to Colorado's 178 school districts are provided through the Public School Finance Act of 1994 (as amended).
In budget year 2013-14, this legislation provides for over $5.5 billion of funding to Colorado school districts via state taxes ($3.55 billion), local specific ownership (vehicle registration) taxes ($131.4 million), and local property taxes ($1.85 billion). Moneys provided via the Public School Finance Act of 1994 are available to each school district to fund the costs of providing public education.
