HARRISBURG — House Majority Leader Bryan Cutler (R-Lancaster) announced today that the School Safety and Security Committee awarded $53.7 million in School Safety and Security Grants to school districts, vocational schools, intermediate units and charter schools across the state, including 17 school districts in Lancaster County and three in the 100th district.
“As a parent, there is nothing more important to me than the health and safety of our children,” Cutler said. “And as a legislator, I want to make sure we are doing all we can to promote a safe and prosperous learning environment for students, teachers and administrators. These grants are another part of ensuring the success of our schools.”
Those receiving grants in the 100th district are:
• Penn Manor School District - $45,000 for security planning, training and support services.
• Pequea Valley School District - $35,000 for staff training and student behavior support programs.
• Solanco School District - $130,322 for security planning, staff training and security-related technology and equipment.
The School Safety and Security Committee is 17-member committee within the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency which was created as part of Act 44 of 2018
, a comprehensive school safety law passed in 2018. One of its duties is to help distribute both meritorious and competitive grants. A complete list of the 2020 School Safety and Security Grants is available at pccd.pa.gov/schoolsafety.
