  • EHS will see decrease in funding

    Jeffco Public Schools’ new student-based budgeting policy will mean Evergreen High School will lose about $150,000 for the 2015-16 school year.

    Principal Ryan Alsup is predicting an additional $180,000 reduction for the 2016-17 school year, assuming the district budgeting model is retained and state funding remains as projected.

    For the 2015-16 school year, Alsup is cutting an assistant principal position, the instructional coach position and half of a teacher position to make up the loss, trying to keep the reductions away from classrooms.
