Just a quick note to correct some misinformation about the proposed improvement project for Rocky Ford Schools. The project would replace Washington School and Jefferson School with a PK-8 addition to the high school. A recent article claimed that either Washington School or Jefferson School would be turned into low-income housing when they are vacated. This is not true. The plan is to demolish the buildings on the Washington and Jefferson campuses and replace them with a grass park. The school district would maintain the grass. This has all been built into the plan, complete with all the budgetary requirements, and was approved by the BEST grant program board of directors.
Ever wonder about what happened to the marijuana money that was supposed to help fund school improvement projects? Here is an article from the Denver Post that provides an explanation. https://5il.co/10bv7

There have been some recent questions about how the marijuana excise tax is used by the state of Colorado to fund capital improvement projects for schools. The fact sheet in the link below provides some information on that topic. Additionally, a link to a recent newspaper article has been provided to help explain the reduction in the tax impact for the 2021 ballot issue.

Rocky Ford School District will be hosting an informational session about ballot measure 4B, concerning a proposed facility improvement project (the replacement of Washington School and Jefferson School with a PK-8 addition to the High School), the $40 million BEST grant, and the associated bond. The meeting will take place at the high school cafeteria on Monday, October 11, at 6:30 pm. Dinner will be provided: R-2 chili chip and cinnamon rolls. We would like to get a rough count of the number of people who will be attending to make sure there is enough food.
