Aurora schools reassure parents students are safe

AURORA — Aurora Public Schools superintendent John Barry is telling parents that the district’s plan to protect students is one of the best in the country.

Barry told parents at an open meeting Thursday the district spends about $1 million a year on security and holds drills with about 100 police officers and 50 firefighters each June to practice their response.

According to the Denver Post, some parents are still concerned after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Connecticut in December left 20 children and six adults dead.
