CMC District ballot question 7A: Salida annexation
On August 13, the Salida School District voted to place an annexation measure on the ballot in the fall of 2019. At the August 28 meeting of the CMC Board of Trustees, CMC trustees also voted unanimously to place an annexation measure on the November ballot. Within the CMC District this is now question 7A on your current ballot.
For voters in the CMC District 7A asks:
"Without increasing taxes to the current residents of the Colorado Mountain College District, shall the Colorado Mountain College District be enlarged to include property within the boundaries of Salida School District Number R32J?"

Double the impact of your gifts to two important funds
The CMC Foundation has generously been offered a one-to-one match for all donations made to Fund Sueños, up to $25,000, by Board of Overseers' Member Carole Segal. Likewise, all gifts to the No Barriers Fund, will be matched by the CMC Foundation's discretionary fund, up to $25,000 through the end of the year! Help us raise $50,000 in new funds for these two important programs!
Fund Sueños is a cutting-edge, donor-funded, income sharing agreement that provides access to higher education financing for students who have workforce authorization but are not eligible to receive federal financial aid.
The No Barriers Fund offers assistance for student emergencies or unexpected needs on a case-by-case basis.
Any and all gifts to the CMC Foundation are always appreciated. If you'd like to support any individual campus or program, we welcome your tax-deductible donation to the CMC Foundation.
Support educators in your region by "growing your own"
The “Rural Colorado Grow Your Own Educator” grant program provides a one-to-one match for every dollar raised, up to $500,000 annually. These funds are used to support teacher candidates during their yearlong, unpaid student-teaching fellowship when it is virtually impossible to work another job.
Last year 14 future teachers benefited from this stipend, receiving a total of $140,000 in support, to assist them in their final year of the program. In the 2019-20 academic year we hope to provide assistance to 15 future educators who are in the final year of their program this year.
We need to raise $75,000 this year, which will be matched for a total of $150,000, to fully support our teacher education candidates. Your gift will support a newly credentialed, quality educator in your community.
Help us to "grow our own" local educators today!
