Randolph gets school safety grant

September 26, 2018

Thirteen school districts and schools in south-central and southwest Wisconsin were awarded $470,750 for such things as the creation of school safety intervention teams, training to improve student mental health and money for more physical security upgrades.

Wisconsin Atty. Gen. Brad Schimel announced the newest recipients Tuesday.

Locally, the grants included $26,132 for Randolph School District.

The money comes from a $100 million fund approved in March, following a deadly mass shooting at a Florida school.

Fifty-five districts and individual schools were awarded over $4.4 million in grants on Tuesday.
