The Colorado Department of Education recently launched a website that makes it a lot easier for parents to find information about how schools and districts are spending money. The “Colorado K12 Financial Transparency Website” provides revenue and expenditure information for every school, district and BOCE throughout Colorado.
You can search by zip code, city, school or district name. The purpose of the website is to provide transparent and user friendly information about how money is being spent on education in Colorado. Legislation (HB14-1292) passed by the General Assembly called for more financial transparency for Colorado citizens and this website is an outcome of that legislation. Stand for Children was a supporter of this legislation.
