District 11 is the core of our
Colorado Springs

Our School District is a nationally recognized leader when it comes to fiscal responsibility.

It takes pride in being the only large District in the state that conducts an outside audit of its spending.

It’s also the only large District in the state that asks citizens to hold it accountable to the public with a Citizens Oversight Committee which monitors spending with a yearly report to the public.
