Steamboat briefs: Education Fund seeks applicants for board, grants commission – Colorado News

The Steamboat Springs Education Fund, an independent organization charged with administering and distributing the proceeds from a voter-approved half-cent sales tax to benefit K-12 education and improve academic achievement in Routt County, is seeking applicants to fill open positions on its board of directors and grants commission. Each group meets approximately once per month during the school year.

Last year, the Education Fund contributed more than $3.3 million to local schools, providing funding for additional teachers, curriculum, technology and instructional coaches, as well as supporting school-based programs such as the Rocky Mountain Youth Corps Science School and Yampatika.

More information about the Education Fund and applications for the open positions are available at steamboateducationfund.org. Applications are due Sept. 1. Specific questions may be emailed to educationfundboard@gmail.com.
