In the video we take a look at Jeffco School facilities, we call it Ten Thousand Cracks. Ten Thousand Cracks is the result of a detailed survey of the condition of the exterior of Jefferson County (Jeffco) public school buildings. The project visited 55 schools in Jeffco over the month of July 2012. Building deficiencies found include cracked sidewalks and pavement, failed roofing material, leaking windows, failed brickwork, damaged building envelopes, on both temporary and permanent buildings.
The district's 2011-2012 facility condition assessment found that thirty (30) campuses or roughly 20% are either in very poor condition or are in need of replacement. Nearly $134 million of mission-critical and priority 2 (needs repair with 1 year) deficiencies have been identified for repair.
The largest category of mission critical deficiencies are related to fire and safety systems.
The $99 million bond issue (3B) on this November's ballot will help address many of these issues in order to ensure Jeffco students have a safe, warm and dry environment in which to learn.
Vote Yes for Jeffco Schools mill and bond - 3A and 3B, thank you.
