THANK YOU, JEFFCO VOTERS!

Jeffco Builds, the Jeffco Public Schools Capital Improvement Program, is strengthening the foundation of learning the district provides to students, families, and community. Jeffco Builds leverages investments provided by voter approved 2018 ballot measure 5B — $567 million in bond revenue for vital construction projects at schools across the district. This investment provides all students and educators with safe, high-quality learning environments to support a thriving student experience.

Financial Oversight & Stewardship

What is the Capital Asset Advisory Committee?

In 2010, the Board of Education authorized the establishment of the Capital Asset Advisory Committee in accordance with Policies EL-8 and FB, both of which deal with facility condition and long range facility planning. The Committee was formed from members of the 2005 Capital Improvement Program Oversight Committee and the 2009 Facilities Usage Committee. The purpose of the Committee is to monitor the planning of capital needs and the implementation of capital programs, which may include future bond programs.

Members have a working familiarity with facility design and/or construction practices; business management expertise with organization(s) of comparable size to the district, and are independent and free from any relationship that would interfere with independent judgment. Preference is given to Jefferson County residents.

The Work of the Committee

The committee meets monthly throughout the year. Its primary functions are to:

  • Establish a transparent set of criteria for evaluation of district facilities. Elements may include facility condition index (FCI), educational adequacy index (EAI), utilization based on enrollment to capacity ratio, demographic predictions, student achievement, financial stewardship, etc.
  • Assist in the development of an annual District Wide Facility Master Plan that may include school replacements, school consolidations, school closures, grade level reconfigurations, and boundary and transportation changes.
  • Monitor the planning of capital needs and the implementation of capital programs, which may include future bond programs.
  • Assist in the development of a potential future bond program.
  • Ensure that sound, long-term decisions are consistent with the needs of the district and in support of the district’s strategic plan.
  • Ensure that decisions are made through active involvement in communications with the community.
  • Provide an annual written report to the Board of Education on the ongoing responsibilities of the committee.

Consistent with the above functions, the Capital Asset Advisory Committee encourages continuous process improvement and implementation of sound decision-making based on data which adheres to the district policies, procedures, and practices.

  • Upgrade safety and security equipment in school buildings.
  • Repair, renovate, equip, and reconstruct buildings to ensure our schools are safe, efficient and accessible to all students, including those with disabilities.
  • Construct, furnish, equip, and support needs in buildings and classrooms at all schools in the district, including charter schools.
