THANK YOU, JEFFCO VOTERS!

Jeffco Builds is Jeffco Public Schools’ Capital Improvement Program. Jeffco Builds uses bond revenue from ballot measures to fund essential construction projects that improve the school experience for staff and students. 

In 2018, voters approved ballot measure 5B, providing $567 million for school construction projects across the district. 


Financial Oversight & Stewardship

What is the Capital Asset Advisory Committee?

In 2010, the Board of Education established the Capital Asset Advisory Committee (CAAC). The Committee was formed in accordance with Policies EL-8 and FB, which focus on facility condition and future planning. The Committee monitors the Capital Improvement Program (Jeffco Builds) and future bond work.

Expand the Monthly Meetings and Financial Updates sections for more details on financial reports.

The Work of the Committee

The committee meets monthly throughout the year. Its primary functions are to:

  • Establish a transparent set of criteria for evaluation of district facilities. Elements may include facility condition index (FCI), educational adequacy index (EAI), utilization based on enrollment to capacity ratio, demographic predictions, student achievement, financial stewardship, etc.
  • Assist in the development of an annual District Wide Facility Master Plan that may include school replacements, school consolidations, school closures, grade level reconfigurations, and boundary and transportation changes.
  • Monitor the planning of capital needs and the implementation of capital programs, which may include future bond programs.
  • Assist in the development of a potential future bond program.
  • Ensure that sound, long-term decisions are consistent with the needs of the district and in support of the district’s strategic plan.
  • Ensure that decisions are made through active involvement in communications with the community.
  • Provide an annual written report to the Board of Education on the ongoing responsibilities of the committee.

Consistent with the above functions, the Capital Asset Advisory Committee encourages continuous process improvement and implementation of sound decision-making based on data which adheres to the district policies, procedures, and practices.
