Schools receive resource officer, equipment funding


Follow The Republic:


Both Bartholomew County public school districts have been granted money from the state Department of Homeland Security, allowing them to complete expensive safety projects at a fraction of the cost.

The money — $50,000 for Bartholomew Consolidated and $18,053.50 for Flat Rock-Hawcreek — was awarded through the Secured School Safety Grant program, which was created in 2013 to make Hoosier schools safer.

Neighboring Jennings County School Corp. was also granted $21,600 to employ a school resource officer.

The legislation provides $20 million to be distributed over two years. Schools can apply for up to $50,000 — or up to $35,000 for schools of less than 1,000 — and must match the grant with school funds.
