Outdoor Recreation Coalition Endorses Citizens for SD 51

Outdoor recreation is an important part of the Grand Valley’s culture, lifestyle, and economic viability. The Outdoor Recreation Coalition (ORC) was formed to ensure that as our economic impact grows, we continue to serve the community that we rely upon. We owe a lot to the Grand Valley, not only its steadfast commitment of support to our industry but to the folks that continue to support the local businesses and lands that make our coalition so strong. Further, we believe a healthy, thriving community starts with a strong commitment to its future leaders, business owners, and citizens.

What is the BEST Grant Program?

The BEST Grant Program was established in 2008 to provide an annual amount of funding in the form of competitive grants to school districts, charter schools, Institute of charter schools, boards of cooperative educational services, and the Colorado School for the Deaf and the Blind. The funds from a BEST grant can be used for the construction of new schools as well as general construction and renovation of existing school facility systems and structures. 

Clifton Elementary Conditions

Teachers are doing their best to overlook some of the poor conditions in their classrooms, but, parts missing from ceilings, the constant smell of mildew, and poor carpet conditions are unacceptable! Our educators and students deserve better than this. 

Vote YES on 3A and 3B this November. 

A thriving economy starts with supporting our schools

If not now, when?

That’s the question that brought together a coalition of business owners, teachers, parents, and voters to form Citizens for School District 51, the grassroots organization behind the campaign to pass the bond and mill levy this November.

New Palisade High School Auxiliary Gym - Written by Principal Dan Bollinger

Thanks to the hard work and sacrifice of our Palisade High School maintenance staff, the main PHS gymnasium is in very good condition. In partnership with District 51, we have refurbished the floor, put in handrails on the bleachers for the safety of our guests, repaired the mechanical systems numerous times, and replaced the scoreboards that were no longer operational.
