Greeley-Evans School District 6 is the largest school district in Weld County, providing educational services to more than 22,000 students. The District has 32 operating elementary, K-8, middle, high, alternative and charter schools. With a $241 million budget and more than 2,200 employees, District 6 is the third largest employer in Weld County. The mission of District 6 is to provide every student with a personalized, well-rounded and excellent education in a safe and caring environment. The goal is for every student to have a learning plan that meets his or her needs and to graduate high school with a solid plan for their future, whether that be college, a career or military service. District 6 is committed to providing many innovative educational opportunities and choices for all its families, including magnet programs in the arts and STEM, programs, robust Career Pathways, strong early literacy programs and one-to-one computer devices for all students. District 6 has an ethnically and socio-economically diverse population. More than 65 percent of its students qualify for free and reduced lunch. Because of that, the district receives money through federal Title grants, especially Title 1. That is factored into what the district can spend per pupil in District 6, but is actually only allotted to the schools with the highest number of students living in poverty. More District 6 schools than ever are ranked as “performance,” the highest level recognized by the Colorado Department of Education. The District 6 on-time graduation rate of 82 percent has been steadily growing over the past five years, and exceeds the average on-time graduation rate for the state of Colorado. In 2017, voters in Greeley and Evans approved a 10 mill Mill Levy Override for District 6. This is the first MLO approved for District 6, and provides funding for operations, including text books and digital course content, computers, other classroom technology, improved safety and security at all schools, new school buses, increase in salaries for hourly employees and much more. This local revenue source is essential for maintaining and improving the operations of District 6 to better serve its students. In addition, voters also approved a $395 million bond issue in November of 2019. These dollars are being used to build new schools, renovate existing schools, improve safety at all schools, and remove more than one-third of portable classrooms in District 6. Projects will help address deferred maintenance, remove asbestos from buildings, provide safe entries at schools, provide additional classrooms to address capacity and improve learning spaces for students. Both the MLO and bond issue provide funding to District 6 charter schools. District 6 is committed to providing transparency to ensure our community has access to all the district’s financial information, including the annual budget and financial reports.
