07.24.2014 | School Security Grant Program update
In H.B. 453, the General Assembly appropriated over $17 million to the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission to expand the School Security Grant Program in order to accommodate security enhancements at private, parochial, and chartered schools. The Round Two funding will include specific security enhancements at main entrances (only) and the purchase of emergency communications systems. Public schools that did not participate in Round One funding, make the deadline for submittals, or applied for only one of the two grants, will be eligible to apply during Round Two. However, districts who received a grant in Round One will not be eligible for additional funding for that same purpose during Round Two. Commission staff plans to launch Round Two in October 2014.
