Valley Schools Receive $4.4 Million in Safety Grants for Security Upgrades

The Governor announced today that the state will support the installation of security upgrades to K-12 schools across Ohio.

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. Today’s announcement represents the third round of grants awarded as part of the Ohio K-12 School Safety Grant Program.

“We are being proactive in keeping our schools safe in Ohio. Student and staff safety is paramount,” said Governor DeWine. “These safety grants are helping schools create environments that are secure and welcoming for teachers and their students.”
