Aurora Schools Help Community Cope In Shooting Aftermath

AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – Many students from the Aurora Public Schools were in the theater two weeks ago when the gunfire erupted and the district wants to make sure all its students, as well as teachers and parents, get the help they need as the new school year begins.

Thursday at Rangview High School the district connected parents with counselors from the National Center for School Crisis and Bereavement to give them some guidance.

The meeting was part of a several-step plan that includes training faculty and staff and even increasing security throughout the district.

“We have roughly 15 officers assigned to Aurora Public Schools full time, we’ll be augmenting that with additional security for the immediate future,” Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates said.

The district also plans to hire more psychologists and counselors with the help of a $50,000 grant from the Department of Education.
