The Jeffco school board approved a 2013-14 budget totaling $952 million at its meeting May 30, a spending plan that adds $22 million to current-year expenditures.
The increase comes thanks to a boost in funding from the state and to the tax hike approved by voters last November. The budget still is $45 million less than the 2009-10 spending plan.
The district avoided $45 million in cuts this year when Jeffco voters approved 3A and 3B on last November’s ballot. The district’s mill-levy rate is 48.721, or $388 annually for a $100,000 home.
