Voters Approve Ballot Measure 3C

Ballot Measure 3C ApprovedOn November 6, Aurora voters approved ballot measure 3C, a $15 million mill levy override that will recover a portion of the $70 million in state funding cuts that Aurora Public Schools has experienced over the past three years.

“On behalf of the APS Board of Education and Leadership Team, I would like to thank voters for supporting this important ballot measure,” said APS Superintendent John L. Barry. “Our success is due to the tremendous efforts of our campaign committee, Aurora Citizens for Excellent Schools, our staff, parents and the thousands of community members who supported this measure. Because of our strong community support, every student will benefit from mill levy funding.”

The mill levy will provide funding in three key areas:

  • ACHIEVEMENT: Recovering a portion of reduced state funding for reading, writing, math, science, early childhood education and more public school choices
  • INSTRUCTIONAL RESOURCES:  Recovering a portion of reduced state funding for instructional classroom technology, equipment and curriculum materials, which aid in preparing students for college and careers
  • HIGH QUALITY STAFF:  Recruiting and retaining high quality teachers and staff to provide for smaller class sizes, increases in graduation rates and lower dropout rates

The election results are based on a review of unofficial county results. Official results will be available later this month.
