A state grant will allow the Troy City Schools to buy a security communication system that would give staff the ability to send an immediate alert to school offices and police cruisers. Superintendent Eric Herman told the Board of Education Feb. 10 the Ohio School Facilities Commission awarded the district a $17,985 grant for the system.
The grant was one of $58,266 in gifts/grants reported to the board for February. Among other major payments were $23,000 to be used as needed from ConAgra as part of its school support program and $11,317 from The Troy Foundation to Heywood Elementary School to buy a mobile iPad cart. The board at its meeting was presented an additional check for $75,000 from Upper Valley Medical Center and its Center for Sports Medicine as part of a partnership program.
