Community Survey Highlights

Adams 12 Five Star Schools has been working with parents, students, staff, and the greater community to develop a plan that meets the needs of our students today and over the next decade.

An important component of this plan was conducting a community survey of the Five Star community on capital and operational investments. The survey was open between January 23 and February 11, 2024 and more than 2,500 respondents completed it. Here is a summary of the findings.

Capital Investments 

We asked the community to tell us which capital investment areas they would prioritize by importance to them, and if they would support a bond of up to $830 million without raising taxes on this November’s ballot to support capital investments.


ranked school safety as the #1 spending priority for capital investments

1 in 3 respondents rated aging roofs/HVAC and rebuilding/modernizing schools as a #2 priority


are likely to support a bond without a tax increase

with 52% saying “very likely” and 33% saying “likely” 

Capital Investment Priorities

Operational Investments 

The community then completed the same exercise, by telling us which operational investments they would prioritize based on importance to them, and how likely they would be to support a property tax increase on this November's ballot. 


ranked hiring/retaining staff as their #1 spending priority

far outranking any other priority from a list of seven operational investment areas


are likely to support a property tax increase 

with 29% saying “very likely” and 38% saying “likely

Operational Investment Priorities
