Preliminary recommendations on $7.7 million in donations collected after the Connecticut school shooting calls for giving $281,000 to each of the families of the 26 children and school educators killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School last year.

The families of 12 surviving children who witnessed the shootings would each get $20,000; two teachers who were injured would get $150,000 between them.

A community foundation has been tasked with dividing up $11.4 million that was raised with the help of the United Way.

The recommendations were made before a Thursday night public forum at Newtown's Edmond Town Hall to discuss how to divide the $7.7 million.

Some victims' families have complained the process has caused them anguish by putting them in the difficult place of deciding how to divide the money.
