Upgrades On The Way

Governor, DeWine announces the state will support the installation of security upgrades at more than 700 K-12 schools across Ohio. A total of 708 schools in 57 counties will receive $57.8 million dollars in grant funding to enhance student and staff safety. Governor DeWine is awarding the funds as part of his K-12 School Safety Grant Program, which helps schools with physical security expenses, such as new security cameras, public address systems, automatic door locks, visitor badging systems, and exterior lighting. It represents the third round of grants awarded. Governor DeWine created the Ohio School Safety Center in 2019 to assist local schools, colleges and universities, and law enforcement agencies to prevent, prepare for, and respond to threats and acts of violence, including self-harm, through a holistic, solutions-based approach to improving school safety.
