Turman Elementary's mission is to create a community of lifelong learners.

Have you seen the Federal Impact Aid Form?

The State of Colorado has a number of federal properties that are exempt from certain local and state taxes. D2 loses tax revenue because these properties are not taxed. We are allowed to recoup some of these tax dollars when we have children whose parents serve in the military or are employed on federal property. Returning this form to your child's school helps support all students and the quality instruction they receive. Our goal for the Impact aid form is 100%, so please fill out the information and return it back to your school as soon as possible, regardless of where you work or live (on government property or not).

Has visto el formulario de Ayuda de Impacto Federal?

El estado de Colorado tiene una serie de propiedades federales que están exentos de impuestos locales y estatales. D2 pierde ingresos fiscales porque estas propiedades no son sujetos al impuesto federal. Nos permite recuperar parte de esos dólares de impuestos cuando tenemos niños cuyos padres sirven en las fuerzas armadas o se emplean en propiedad federal. Devolver esta forma a la escuela de su hijo para apoyar a todos los estudiantes y la calidad de la instrucción que reciben. Nuestro objetivo para el formulario de ayuda de impacto es de 100%, por favor completa la información y devolver a la escuela tan pronto como sea posible, independientemente del lugar donde usted trabaja o vive (en la propiedad del gobierno o no).

Established in 1987, Turman Elementary was named after Robert L. Turman. Mr. Turman served a decade on the Harrison School District board and was dedicated to educating the children of Colorado Springs.


Our 2012 state assessment results were outstanding! Out of all of the schools in the district, Turman students were ranked first in growth in reading, tied for first in growth in writing, and second in growth in math. We are extremely proud of our teachers, staff, and students for their hard work and great achievement!

We are eager to see our 2013 state assessment growth rates when they are released this summer.
