List of Waivers Received By the School District, Currently Platte Valley Weld Re-7 Does Not Have Any Waivers From State Statute

Plan for Distribution of Additional Mill Levy Revenue

Platte Valley has been fortunate to have tremendous community support that has passed regular mill-levy override initiatives. The 2014 mill-levy override has been used to help retain and recruit highly effective teachers, maintain class sizes to enhance student learning, purchase and install instructional technology, maintain music, Gifted & Talented, and related specialized programs to meet individualized student needs, and to replace outdated textbooks and curriculum. The amount of the voter approved mill-levy override is not to exceed $2,491,537. 

Because of the investments the Platte Valley School District voters have made, the district has regularly and routinely excelled inside and outside the classroom. Platte Valley High School had the highest graduation rate in the state in 2016 and earned the Governor's Distinguished Improvement Award for consistent high growth in English Language Arts, English Language Proficiency and Math. The district regularly beats state average testing scores across the state. While the state of Colorado has neglected to fully fund schools across the state because of the Budget Stabilization Factor, costing the District approximately $7,422,903 since its inception in 2009, the patrons at Platte Valley School District have chosen to fill the void and invest in their local schools. We believe the investment is paying off.
