The application period remains open for public, private and charter schools serving preschool through high school. The BWC has already approved $6.6 million in grants to 219 Ohio schools and districts since July 1, with BWC paying $3 to every $1 a school district spends toward eligible equipment.
That can include interior and exterior security doors, keycard systems, fire code-compliant door-locking mechanisms and bullet-resistant glass coatings. Also eligible is “incident response equipment” such as first-aid supply bags; panic-button systems and communication systems, some that can interface directly with emergency responders.
“We’re pleased we can be a part of Gov. DeWine’s vision for making Ohio’s schools as safe and secure as possible,” BWC Administrator/CEO Stephanie McCloud said. “These dollars also keep workers safe in their daily routine activities.”
