The radios are used during reunification drills in which communication among staff is critical for the transport and safety of students.

The board approved the purchase of 55 Hytera digital security radios at a cost of $23,490. The radios are used during reunification drills in which communication among staff is critical for the transport and safety of students.

The current mix of digital and analogue radios has hindered communications during drills, and recommendations from officials involved in securing students during the Arapahoe school shooting emphasized the importance of clear communication during an incident that may overload the school website and other traditional forms of communication.
