Bond Funds Improve Student and Staff Safety

Side Creek StudentsEnsuring students and staff members are safe every day is our top priority at Aurora Public Schools. Thanks to bond funds approved by voters in 2016, all schools are receiving critical safety and security improvements.

By the end of the bond program, all schools will have updated security cameras, fire alarms and PA systems wired to APS central security offices. Many of these improvements have already been completed or are underway.

Another key improvement is the addition of security vestibules at 21 schools that currently don’t have this safety feature. This security enhancement will ensure that visitors follow check-in procedures at the front office before entering the rest of the building. Vestibules have been installed at 11 schools, with the remaining 10 schools scheduled for completion in 2019.
