This week, Attorney General Brad Schimel announced more School Safety Grants for our area. This week, he announced grants for Zion Lutheran Grade School (Menomonee Falls), $20,279; Nicolet UHS School District (Glendale), $19,340; and Aquinas Academy (Menomonee Falls), $15,504.
The grants are part of the $100 million Republicans invested in school safety. That's in addition to the largest, real dollar, investment in our schools of $11.5 billion.
The Attorney General recently awarded safety grants for Saint Joseph Parish School (Grafton), $19,455; Brown Deer School District, $42,678; Mequon-Thiensville School District, $136,441; Milwaukee Jewish Day School, $20,000; and Bethlehem Evangelical Lutheran School $18,880.00.
Grants were also awarded to Grafton School District Grafton $83,836.00; Lumen Christi Catholic School in Mequon; $19,950.00; Menomonee Falls School District $131,808.00; Saint Boniface Grade School in Germantown $20,465.00; Saint Paul Lutheran School in Grafton $19,840.00; and Whitefish Bay School District $80,841.00.
These investments will help complement what many of our school districts are already doing to protect their children. School leaders know best about what they need to protect their students, and this plan gives them the flexibility to make changes where needed.
There will be an additional round of funding for mental health services soon. You can read more about the grants
