Kasich Seeks $17 Million For School Security< < Back to
The administration planned to announce details Wednesday.
State Superintendent Richard Ross said 3,000 schools took advantage of $12 million made available last summer for entryway security and communications. New grants would be available for security upgrades at both public and private schools.
Kasich would also provide free safety-plan training and consultation to districts through a grant to the University of Findlay. He proposes penalties up to revocation of a superintendent's license for failing to file a required safety plan.
Attorney General Mike DeWine said Kasich's proposals are a helpful next step in Ohio's school safety efforts.
