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 funds are part of a $190,000,000 statewide appropriation for school safety and school mental health in the FY2022-2023 budget.
“There is nothing more important than protecting our children and educators by ensuring our schools are safe and secure. This has been a top priority of mine since taking office, and I’m proud that Senate Republicans took a stand to keep our children safe at school. I’m pleased that our schools will now have the resources to provide enhanced mental health services and security measures, and I’m proud to have fought for and voted to secure this appropriation increase,” stated Regan.
The total appropriation for each school includes one-half of its appropriation for school safety and security and one-half of its appropriation for school mental health.
