Garfield School District

At the December 13, 2023 School Board Meeting, the Garfield Re-2 Board of Directors certified the mills for the 2024 school year. This is an action that is required by the State of Colorado at the end of each year - typically prior to December 15 -  before property taxes are assessed in the following year. 

The total mill levy for the Garfield Re-2 School District for 2024 is 20.856 - a reduction of 4.460 mills from 2023. This is possible because of the significant increase in assessed valuation in the District explained Garfield Re-2 Chief Financial Consultant Jeff Blanford.

In the face of adversity, the human spirit has an uncanny ability to shine its brightest. Kathryn Senor Elementary student Asher Bourquin is a remarkable young man who, at just one-year-old, embarked on a journey that would test his resilience. Six years later, he finds himself in the position to give back, with a little help from his Garfield Re-2 family.

The Bourquin family's world was turned upside down a week after Asher's first birthday when he was diagnosed with an exceptionally rare and cancerous brain tumor known as Atypical Rhabdoid Tumor (ATRT). The road ahead was filled with medical procedures. In that challenging year, Asher underwent three brain surgeries and faced the relentless battle of chemotherapy and radiation treatments, each step requiring courage from this young warrior. His journey was not one traveled alone; it was a collective effort by his family, friends, and an entire medical team.
