School safety hotline funding clears Legislature

Associated Press Published: May 5, 2014 0

DENVER — A school safety hotline inspired by shootings at Columbine High School is closer to getting a state boost.

The House voted 65-0 Monday to approve a bill to spend about $300,000 to fund the Safe2Tell hotline. That's an anonymous threat-gathering system created in 2004 for students and teachers to report threats and bullying.

The measure has already passed the Senate and now awaits the governor's signature.

State officials say the hotline has prevented more than two dozen school attacks since its creation but needs consistent state funding.
