Safe Schools Targeted Grants Awarded, Corbin Says
10/4/2018
EXTON – Representative Becky Corbin (R-East Brandywine) today announced that almost $60,000 in Safe Schools Targeted Grants were awarded to the Coatesville Area and Owen J. Roberts school districts.

The grant program, funded through the state budget, assists schools with paying for programs to prevent and reduce violent incidents in schools, purchase safety and security-related equipment, and provide for the training and compensation of school resource officers (SRO) and school police officers (SPO).

“I am pleased to assist the Coatesville Area and Owen J. Roberts school districts with funding to make our schools safer,” Corbin said. “No child should fear going to school. Instead, they should be focused on learning. Sadly, recent events have caused students and parents to question their security while in school buildings. It is my hope these grants result in improvements that can bring some peace of mind to students, staff, and parents.”

Coatesville Area School District was awarded $40,000 to train and pay for a school police officer, who is employed directly by the district. The funding was awarded under year one of a two-year grant. Owen J. Roberts School District received $19,994 to establish and implement programs to prevent and reduce violent incidents.

The Safe Schools Targeted Grant Program is separate from the new $60 million School Safety and Security Grant Program created by the Legislature this year and administered by the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD). The deadline for schools to apply for the new program is Friday, October 12.

The 155th District consists of the following municipalities: West Brandywine, East Brandywine, Uwchlan, Upper Uwchlan, West Vincent, East Pikeland, Spring City, and part of Phoenixville.
