New State Program Awarded Safety Grants to Area School Districts, Warner Reports
10/31/2018
HARRISBURG – Rep. Ryan Warner (R-Fayette/Westmoreland) announced this week that multiple area school districts each received a $25,000 state grant for continued improvements on their school safety policies to keep its students safe from harm.

“When we send our children to school, we send them there with the expectation that they will be in a safe place,” said Warner. “In using this grant money, our school districts can continue to live up to that expectation by purchasing things such as metal detectors and school safety officers as well as putting into effect better and more efficient safety policies.”

Local grant recipients include Connellsville Area School District, Frazier School District, Laurel Highlands School District, South Moreland School District and Uniontown Area School District.

The School Safety and Security Grant Program was created by lawmakers earlier this year to provide grants to school districts, intermediate units, area vocational-technical schools, charter schools and private residential rehabilitative institutions for a wide variety of projects to improve school safety.

Eligible uses for the grants include hiring school security officers, purchasing security-related technology, completing safety and security assessments, implementing violence prevention curricula, offering counseling services for students, and creating other programs to protect students.

The new program was created as part of a comprehensive school safety bill that was signed into law in June. More than $60 million in new funding was dedicated in the current year’s budget to improve school safety.
