Mill Levy Override (MLO) Citizens’ Oversight Committee

School District 11’s Ballot Issues were approved by voters, in 2000 and 2017, which called for the formation of a Citizens’ Oversight Committee to monitor implementation, performance and use of the Mill Levy Override (MLO) funding.  The Committee meets monthly at the District 11 Administration Complex (1115 North El Paso Street, Colorado Springs, Colorado) to review and monitor both the 2000 and 2017 MLO funds. 

We are looking for additional Committee members!  If you would like to be a part of this invaluable program, we invite you to apply.

•Make recommendations regarding any program modifications
•Familiarize themselves with the MLO spending plan and the D-11 strategic plan and mission
•Participate in periodic public briefings to inform the community about implementation progress

MLO Audits: Performance Excellence Assessment Reports
Consistent with the Mill Levy Election Ballot Questions, Colorado Springs School District 11 has conducted a number of biennial/triennial assessments of the MLO spending plan to review its progress in meeting requirements of the comprehensive district performance plan or strategic plan.  Available results are below for review.

To maximize accountability, District 11 has prepared a Program Implementation Plan (PIP) for each of the 25 items contained in the MLO spending plan.
