Denver7: Aurora Public Schools get security upgrades thanks to bond

Story excerpt:

"When students in Aurora Public Schools (APS) head back to class on Tuesday morning, many of them will notice changes to their school buildings. All summer, crews have been working on various projects paid for through a $300 million bond voters approved in 2016.

'We have capacity projects, we have repair projects, and one of the biggest needs in schools is mechanical repairs,' said Amy Spatz, director of construction management and support for APS.

At Hinkley High School, students will start class amid ongoing construction on a new addition. The addition will bring eight new classrooms, space for STEM and bio-tech labs, and a new enclosed courtyard area. Hinkley, one of the district’s smaller high schools, will now have increased capacity for about 2,000 students."
