Rocked by deadly school violence, Colorado lawmakers from both parties signed off Monday on a bill to make public school districts liable for shootings and violence.
A bill to make Colorado schools liable for shootings faces its first test Monday in the state Legislature.
The parents of a teenage girl who died after being shot at school will receive information from the school district in an agreement that they won’t file a lawsuit.
Colorado schools could be sued for shootings under legislation introduced Friday by state lawmakers who say they are sending a directive to education officials to do more to keep students safe.
Friends and family gathered Saturday night to remember Claire Davis, the teenager who was shot and killed by a fellow classmate at Arapahoe High School one year ago.
The father of a student who killed a classmate at a suburban Denver high school before committing suicide posted a newspaper obituary for his son on the anniversary of the shooting, saying he forgives his son.
A candlelight ceremony to mark one year since the deadly shooting at Arapahoe High School will take place on Saturday night.
After Gov. John Hickenlooper said he’s open to discussing the possibility of teachers carrying guns in Colorado schools, several teachers said Monday they should be trained just like police officers.
“There is not a parent in this state that doesn’t want to make sure we’re doing everything possible to make their kid safe,” Hickenlooper said.
An Arapahoe High School security guard says the deadly school shooting that took place last December could have been prevented.
