OTHER QUESTIONS TO ASK & HOW TO FIND THE ANSWERS

The Colorado K12 Financial Transparency website does not have an online option to directly compare all schools within a district. To gather school-by-school spending data, view financial transparency reports for each school in the district. (You can view all schools in your district from the district’s financial transparency report.) Since you will need to look at each school individually, it may be helpful to consider comparing by school type (such as high, middle, or elementary).
