Jamestown Receives $25,000 School Safety Grant

HARRISBURG – Senator Michele Brooks announced today that Jamestown Area School District was awarded a $25,000 state grant to help improve student safety.

The grant was one of 39 awarded by the state Department of Education under its Safe Schools Targeted Grant program.  Jamestown also received a $25,000 grant in October under the new grant program created by legislators with the state budget last year and administered by the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency. 

“An ongoing priority for everyone is working together to customize school safety needs to help protect our children,” Sen. Brooks said.  

Superintendent Tracy Reiser said the funding will be used to buy and install new key fobs and video-cameras at school entranceways.
