Full story: Estes Park Trail-Gazette

Providing just enough information to let the citizens know what is coming, but not enough to let potential wrong-doers know how to circumvent the system, the Estes Park School District R-3 board of education voted 3-1 at Monday night's meeting to spend up to $210,000 for the installation of security cameras school-wide.

Toddy Boy Jirsa had to pat himself on the back byt telling folks he has been on the school board for 10 years and rarely missed a meeting. funny thing is no one wants him on the board and would be happy if he did miss meetings but he must protect his dynasty until his son graduates.
This article is about the safety of kds, teachers, staff, parents, administration and community members not Todd tooting his own horn as usual. He really needs to step down. What a self centered blow hard.

Hmmmmmm, I'm thinking 'feeling safe' is the normal postion right up to the first gun shot. Then you get the comments "I never thought that could happen here". What is the time element of arrival from time the police or anyone sees on a monitor suspicious activity; minutes ? How many shots can be made in minutes? Really, isn't the best/fastest defence and deterrent an armed on site individual? Even that may not stop a 'looney' from a shooting event, but odds are it would reduce the effect of it.....IMO

How many bids did the school board take before settling on Kiva networks the company that won't give any discounts? Were they the cheapest? The best? The most reliable or does someone know someon that works for Kiva?

Why is it that Mr. Walker objected? A good and accurate article would include opposing views. Please TG follow up and answer.

Todd Jirsa keeps talking about the financial shortcomings the school here has, which he says impacts the quality of education the students receive, and impacts the ability to hire teachers, but so far the board has plans to spend almost a half million dollars to tear down the old elementary school which was completely neglected until it was in this total state of disrepair, and now plans to spend close to a quarter million dollars for a camera system.
Where is all this money coming from when it was made to sound like the school is in the midst of a fiscal crisis?
Is this what they call discretionary spending?
neglect the school buildings, students and teachers, but money for the big white elephants?
Can someone ask or demand an audit as to where the money we don't have is going?

Todd is a narcissistic, egomaniac. he thinks nothing he does is wrong, he can justify every bad thing he's ever done and make it sound like he did you a favor, borderline sociopath, no conscience, remorse, or true feelings for others, is convinced he can do no wrong, will not admit or "own" it, even when he has made an obvious mistake, never apologizes, even when he knows he's crossed the line.
Believes he and his family are "better" than everyone else, and look down on poor people.
Other than that, really nice guy, humorous, good looking and overall saint.
