GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT) -- It's been a year since the bond and mill levy override passed, giving School District 51 the money they needed to make some much needed upgrades.
Wednesday District 51 celebrated that anniversary and shared some of their accomplishments with the public. Those accomplishments include the Orchard Mesa middle school breaking ground, security upgrades across the district and better technology.
Overall, the District wants you to know that your money is being spent well.
"It's the communities money so they should know exactly where it's going," Emily Shockley, District 51 public information officer, said, "That's why we want to have an event like this where people can see where their money is being spent, where it will be spent in the future, and so that they know that what they voted for is actually what the money is being spent on."
