Parents in Douglas County, Colorado, approve of commissioners voting for a flow of $10 million toward resources in response to the STEM School Highlands Ranch shooting, but said they were not sure if the funds would be enough.
Officials made the announcement Monday, less than a week after the STEM tragedy that left eight students injured and one dead May 7. The funds will go toward increased security and potentially mental health resources.
“The sheriff and county commissioners are taking charge and the district leaders are in the shadows,” DCSD parent Aaron Johnson told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
DCSD public information officer Paula Hans told TheDCNF that “we will be better able to respond after a decision has been made.”
“I thank you for the $10 million, I think that’s a great start,” one Douglas County parent said at a Monday meeting. “But again, I think that it’s a band-aid. I think we need long-term solutions.”
