D-11 advocates: Thank you voters



Thanks for your support

To Everyone at the Indy and all its readers: Thank you! I'm a schoolteacher in District 11, and I am happy to know that I have the enthusiastic support of the public when I get to school every morning. The recent mill levy override that you passed will be put to great use! It will ensure that your students come to safe schools, receive the benefits of technology in the classroom, and are taught by well-trained and competitively paid professionals. Your support matters a great deal to teachers in the district.

— Riley Walker, Colorado Springs

Join the committee

On behalf of the Colorado Springs School District 11 Board of Education, staff, and myself, I would like to take a moment to thank the D-11 voters for passing the mill levy override. The MLO passed by a 57 percent vote, and we are deeply grateful to our voters for making this critical funding a reality for our center city school district.

The passage of the mill levy override will help D-11 attract and retain quality teachers and support staff, provide much-needed building and infrastructure repairs and updates, give students access to today's technology, and help to create a safer learning environment.

Your support is valuable beyond words, and that is why D-11 is one of only three large school districts in Colorado that has a citizen's oversight committee to monitor all MLO funds for accounting accuracy and program benefit. We invite you to be a part of the citizen's oversight committee by emailing your contact information and interest to Again we thank the D-11 voters. Our schools, district, students, and community will benefit from your support!

— Dr. Nicholas Gledich, Superintendent, School District 11
