2016 Bond and Mill Levy:
Thank you for your support!
The results of the November 2016 election are in! The Englewood community voted to support issues 3D and 3E, approving a $97.5 million bond and a $1.5 million mill levy override to fund the rebuilding and long-term maintenance of all Englewood elementary schools and preschool.

On behalf of our schools, and especially all Englewood students and staff, Superintendent Rubin would like to extend a sincere and heartfelt thank you. Thank you for continually advocating for our students and schools. You did so in 2011 when you voted to rebuild our secondary schools. And you've done so once again so we can offer our elementary students the same state-of-the-art facilities that cultivate welcoming, inspiring and safe places of learning for our children.

Bringing Urban Agriculture and Green Energy to the Classroom
There are many gems in Englewood Schools, and one of them is a unique STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) program offered at Colorado's Finest High School of Choice. The Sustainable Agriculture and Green Energy program, called SAGE, is a one-of-a-kind course in which students gain hands-on experience working on projects within the urban agriculture and sustainable energy industries. Students are raising chickens, as well as building gardens, chicken coops and compost bins - all while developing business plans and exploring careers in different industries.

Please take a moment to watch a short video on the SAGE program and our students.
