Aurora Public Schools and
Department of Homeland Security
Team Up

Aurora Public Schools has always made student safety a number one priority.   APS has teamed up with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to teach staff members how to keep students safe. Todd Manns, a certified instructor contracted through the Department of Homeland security, will conduct the training.

About 70 APS staff members will attend a session called “Understanding and Planning for School Bomb Incidents.”  The training will examine several topics including: the critical components of a school bomb incident response plan; the actions involved in evacuation decisions; and recognizing the warning signs of aggressive student behavior.

"We are happy to provide this training for our staff members. We constantly work to improve our ability to deal with crisis situations," said Christine Hoppe, APS Director of Incident Response.
