Governor Kasich Wants To Make More Grants For School Safety

Posted May 21st, 2014 @ 7:28pm by Matt Bruning

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSPD) -- Ohio schools would see more grant money made available for security upgrades and face penalties for failing to submit safety plans under school safety initiatives proposed by Gov. John Kasich.

State superintendent Richard Ross said 3,000 schools took advantage of $12 million made available last summer for entryway security and communications. New grants would be available for security upgrades at both public and private schools.

Kasich would also provide free safety-plan training and consultation to districts through a grant to the University of Findlay. He proposes penalties up to revocation of a superintendent's license for failing to file a required safety plan.

Attorney General Mike DeWine said Kasich's proposals are a helpful next step in Ohio's school safety efforts.
