NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Families of the 26 children and educators killed in the Connecticut school shooting last year will receive $281,000 each under a final plan approved for dividing up $7.7 million in donations.  (Read the final report)

The families of 12 surviving children who witnessed the Dec. 14 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School will each get $20,000. Two staff members who were injured will get $75,000 each.

The Newtown-Sandy Hook Community Foundation released the final plan Wednesday after a draft plan was recommended last week.

The foundation was asked to divide up more than $11 million raised with the help of the United Way. The foundation decided to divvy up $7.7 million to the families and survivors, and to have committees decide on uses for the remainder of the donations.
