Safety grants awarded to four area school districts

Surrounded by students and staff at Cedar Elementary School, Avon, Gov. Mike Pence announced Nov. 1 more than $9 million in grant funding to local schools and school corporations through the Secured School Safety Grant Program. The Indiana Secured School Safety Board approved the grants.

Batesville Community School Corp. received $39,421 for school security equipment.

Elsewhere in the area, South Ripley Community School Corp. was granted $50,000 for school security equipment and to employ a school resource officer; Franklin County Community School Corp. was given $50,000 for an SRO; and Jac-Cen-Del Community School Corp. received $35,000 for school security equipment and an SRO.

“The safety of the students, teachers and administrators in our schools is of the utmost importance to the people of Indiana, and I count it a privilege to distribute these resources to schools across our state,” the governor said. “These grants will allow our public schools and school corporations to add resources that will help secure our schools so they can focus on educating our students.”

The program is a dedicated state grant fund that provides matching grants to school corporations, charter schools or coalitions of school corporations and/or charter schools applying jointly to employ a school resource office; conduct a threat assessment; or purchase equipment to restrict access to the school or expedite the notification of first responders.

School corporations, charter schools or coalitions with an average daily membership of at least 1,000 students applied for grants up to $50,000 per year. Eligible entities with an ADM of less than 1,000 students applied for grants of up to $35,000 per year.

The members of the Secured School Safety Grant Program are Mary Allen, director of the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute; Eric Bowlen, principal at Ronald K. Bell East-Middle School, Martinsville; Doug Carter, Indiana State Police superintendent; Mike Eslinger, Parke County sheriff; John Hill, Indiana Department of Homeland Security director; Scott Reske, Indiana Department of Education public and governmental affairs executive director; and Attorney General Greg Zoeller.
