School Determined Funds

When the $795 million dollar bond passed in 2020, the SDF program received $32 million to be spent directly toward these improvements, spanning 133 schools across the district.

School determined funds (SDFs) account for a special series of school improvement initiatives that are set forth and self-determined by the schools that are being served, made possible by Denver voters.

“We want parents and the community to be able to come in and say ‘look what we did’. We concentrate on visualizing spaces for everyone to come in and see. The school determined funds do that, and we have to have it in every single bond.”
