Schools in Lower Bucks are receiving thousands of dollars in school safety grants from the state.
The big winner is Council Rock School District, nabbing more than $465,000. Pennsbury School District is getting $45,000, while the Morrisville School District will get $30,000.
The funding is flexible and can be utilized for a variety of use cases. Equipment, training, counseling services, and many other options are open to the school districts’ discretion.
State Sen. Steve Santarsiero announced the funding this past week.
“I’m glad that so many school districts in Bucks County have received grants from the School Safety and Security Fund,” said Sen. Santarsiero. “Schools should be a place of learning and growth, and making sure that our students and faculty feel safe, and are in fact safe, in their classrooms is a crucial component of fostering that productive environment.”
The Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency distributed the funding from the School Safety and Security Fund. The PCCD distrubted $60 million throughout Pennsylvania in school safety grants last week.
