Letter: Support Jeffco’s 3A and 3B measures

Our students are Jeffco’s future, and that’s why I support Jeffco Schools 3A and 3B. We need to equip our students with the skills needed for 21st-century jobs, and 3A will provide additional support for STEM programming, project-based learning and more. It will also help Jeffco attract and retain top-notch teachers for our students.

The mill levy override will also benefit all students, whether they attend a neighborhood, charter or option school, because all of our students need to be prepared for career and college. Jeffco’s ability to expand educational programming in the district has been constrained by years of budget cuts at the state level and, thus, Jeffco is joined by 50 other school districts in Colorado in asking their local communities to support their schools. The good news is that Jeffco 3A and 3B dollars will stay in Jeffco to benefit Jeffco students.

The 3B bond will address critical facilities’ issues in our schools, including leaky roofs and inefficient HVAC systems, as well as providing new classrooms in areas of Jeffco that are growing. My children’s school was built with a bond like the one being proposed for 3B, and I want to make sure that every child in Jeffco has a seat in a safe and well-maintained school building – whether they live in a new neighborhood or an aging one.

Jeffco Schools 3A and 3B are a commitment to supporting a great education for all our Jeffco students. These children are Jeffco’s future business owners, doctors, engineers and leaders, and for their sake I ask you to join me in voting yes on 3A and 3on Nov. 8.

Karyn Peabody,
