Madison- Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel announced the last of the first round of Wisconsin Department of Justice school safety grants. Representative Jeremy Thiesfeldt released the following statement:
“Yesterday, Attorney General Brad Schimel announced the last of the first round of school safety grants awarded to schools across the state. I am pleased to announce that Faith Lutheran School of Fond du Lac received $20,635, and Oakfield School District received $60,000.”
Schools that had previously received grant money that are all or partially located in District 52 are:
Saint Mary’s Springs Academy $21,690 on 6/28/2018
Fond du Lac School District $296,850 on 6/28/2018
Lomira School District $85,364 on 6/28/2018
Saint Luke’s School $15,962 on 7/10/2018

Redeemer Lutheran Grade School $20,345 on July 7/30/2018
Winnebago Lutheran Academy $21,107 on July 7/30/2018
Round two school safety grant funding is now open, and the office of the Attorney General is ready to receive applications. This will be an opportunity for schools across the state to participate in advanced mental health training and create local intervention teams in order to stop violence before it happens.
Schools and school districts that did not apply for the first round of grants are eligible for the second round of grants, but will need to satisfy all prerequisites of the first round and second round of grant funding. Interested schools can find more information on the OSS website.
“I am pleased to be one of the many leaders of this state who supported this program and voted for in favor of it.” Thiesfeldt added.
