The Funding Plan

Thank you for passing 5C

Moving from steps to strides forward

Building on recent success, we collectively - parents, students, staff and community members - set out to develop a plan to take our success to the next level. During the 2017-2018 school year, over 7,000 people from the Five Star community came together to create a new strategic plan that will continue to elevate student success for years to come. 

In its commitment to “move from steps to strides”, the Adams 12 Five Star Schools Board of Education prioritized a series of investments aligned to ELEVATE, the community’s new strategic plan for our schools. Read about the journey: English | Spanish 


Thanks to the support of the Five Star community, Ballot Issue 5C was passed on November 6, 2018. The Ballot Issue represents a $27 million funding measure to jump-start priorities identified through ELEVATE.
