School Finance Division

About

Colorado public schools receive funding from a variety of sources. However, most revenues to Colorado's 178 school districts are provided through the Public School Finance Act of 1994 (as amended).

In budget year 2016-17, this legislation provides for over $6.3 billion of funding to Colorado school districts via state taxes ($4.1 billion), local specific ownership (vehicle registration) taxes ($159.4 million), and local property taxes ($2.12 billion). Moneys provided via the Public School Finance Act of 1994 are available to each school district to fund the costs of providing public education.
