Each of the school districts applied for and received a $25,000 grant through the School Safety and Security Grant Program created by lawmakers.

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.
