On February 5, 2015, about 100 superintendents held a press conference calling attention to the Colorado Superintendents' Position Statement on School Funding. This statement, signed by 174 of 178 superintendents representing more than 92% of Colorado public school students explained why the school funding conversation is critical to the future of education in Colorado.

Detailed examples of the impact of local cuts on students and the pressing need to restore funding were presented to the media and others in attendance. Superintendents from districts ranging from a student count of 24 to more than 85,000 came together as a demonstration of unified support for action this year.

Students across Colorado are losing out on educational opportunities created by significant cuts, which are still impacting K-12 schools, despite the state’s resurgent economy. The superintendents provided a rationale for restoring one-time and recurring operational resources cut since 2009, in addition to a focus on the hardest hit small rural districts of under 1,000 students and at-risk student populations as determined by poverty.
