The Wisconsin Department of Justice School Safety Program is awarding three-and-a-half-million dollars in grants for school building safety improvements and faculty and staff training. 

Fifty-two school districts are sharing the grant money.  Legislation passed earlier this year requires the districts to create a safety plan with police to become eligible for the grant money.  To this point, 735 school districts have applied for 100-million dollars set aside by state lawmakers for school safety upgrades and training.
