Package Includes $100 Million in Grant Funding for School Safety Improvements
MADISON – Yesterday, Representative James Edming (R – Glen Flora) joined with his Assembly colleagues to approve a package of bills aimed at improving school safety in Wisconsin. A few key components of this package are the creation of the Office of School Safety within the Department of Justice, $100 million in grant funding to school districts to improve safety, and requiring the mandatory reporting of any threats of school violence.
“Students and teachers should feel safe in our schools,” said Rep. Edming. “The school safety package that the Assembly approved yesterday will help provide resources for schools to keep students and faculty safe.”
