Cherry Creek Schools 3a and b


Cherry Creek School District has a tradition of academic excellence because of steadfast taxpayer support for more than 50 years.
 

The district has delivered a strong return on that investment by preparing our students for post secondary success, keeping our communities strong and protecting our property values.
 

Together, 3A and 3B will cost the average homeowner approximately $8 a month.

"We are supportive of (3A &3B) because education is one of the most important investments we can make in our communities. Good schools not only produce an educated workforce, but they also improve property values and make Colorado more attractive to new businesses and residents. . . Cherry Creek's management history with its bonds is exemplary." ~ Denver Post, Oct. 26, 2012

 

"For those who ask why should they vote “YES” for 3A & B since they no longer have children in the district, the answer is that an excellent school system keeps the local neighborhood strong and is an important factor in keeping property values high. They should remember that the average price in the year 2000 for a home in the Cherry Creek School District was $204,000 and now has risen to about $305,000 – school district taxes on that same home over the same period have increased approximately $144."  ~ Mort Marks, Columnist, The Villager

 

"The way forward is clear. Vote yes on Cherry Creek issues 3A and 3B,"  ~ Aurora Sentinel, Oct. 4, 2012

"The strength of any community is deeply intertwined  with the success of its businesses. Strong vibrant schools, good home values, and high quality of life are instrumental in attracting and retaining quality business. We are all better off because of the Cherry Creek School District's dedication to excellence." ~ John Brackney, President and CEO of the South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce

"Good schools mean good business. It's one of the first questions that is asked when businesses decide to relocate: How good are the schools?" ~ Kevin Hougen, President and CEO, The Aurora Chamber
