Because of the Gallagher Amendment, TABOR and Amendment 23, Colorado School Funding has been under pressure for years.
Colorado will not fund TSD by $1,291 per student this school year due to the “Budget Stabilization Factor”.
Colorado ranked 39th in state funding for education in 2015; $2,147 or 19% below average per student.
In 2015 Telluride spent 14.4% less per student, adjusted for inflation than in 2010.
As a result Telluride Education Foundation seeks grant dollars and donations from the businesses and individuals in our community. We also host a variety of fund raising events throughout the year.
