A Good Problem to Have


For the first time in recent memory, St. Vrain Valley School officials are figuring out what they want to do with some extra money. Finally. Initial priorities: shrink class sizes, hire more teachers and improve school buildings. Area voters approved a $189 million bond to build a school and do repairs, and a $16.5 million mill levy override to help add staff after a series of painful cutbacks. In a tough economy, it’s nice to see voters filter some money toward a school system in desperate need.

What’s Next: Expect to see St. Vrain do more than just maintain the status quo—higher test scores, happier parents, increased home values. Money well spent.
