Each school in District 49 is required to provide revenue and expenditure data for statewide reports. The reporting file’s content, format (Microsoft Excel) and naming convention (district code and fiscal year, followed by “website_view”) are coded for statewide use. If you have any questions about this data, or want to request it in another file format, contact the ICA business manager at 719.495.7360.

However, most revenues to the state’s 178 school districts are provided through the Public School Finance Act of 1994 (as amended). Moneys provided via the Public School Finance Act are available to each school district to fund the costs of providing public education.
