Financial Transparency

Jefferson Academy is a public school chartered by the Jefferson County R-1 School District. JA serves approximately 1300 students in grades K-12 and employs more than 235 teachers, education support professionals and administrators.

During its 2010 session, the Colorado General Assembly enacted the “Public School Financial Transparency Act” as part of House Bill 10-1036. Section 22-44-304 of the Colorado Revised Statutes states “Commencing July 1, 2010 and on a continuing basis thereafter, each local education provider shall post (financial) information on-line, in a downloadable format, for free public access. The Act defines “Local Education Providers” to include both school districts and charter schools.
