‘Uncertainty’ hits Boulder Valley S.D. amid enrollment decline, new funding law and tax cap measure

The Boulder Valley School District is set to spend over $550 million on operating expenditures next school year. In lockstep with declining enrollment, fixed costs continue to rise, increasing the cost per student. Boulder spends over $4,000 more per pupil than the state average of $15,000, with some schools allocating over $22,000 per student.
