The Southern Columbia Area School District has been awarded a school safety grant of $50,705 to be used to create a campus-based, digital radio network that is integrated with FirstNet, the high-speed, nationwide wireless broadband network used by First Responders and dedicated to public safety. The grant will also support other security projects designed to keep our schools safe. The grants were awarded by the School Safety and Security Committee within the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD) as part of the School Safety and Security Grant Program, which was created by lawmakers in 2018. According to PCCD officials, the grant process was very competitive.  At of the February 25th grant submittal date, a total of 638 applications were made requesting $177.6 million.  Of those applicants, 234 awards were made totaling $40 million. In October 2018, every school district in the state that submitted a meritorious application was awarded a $25,000 grant to improve school safety. The new grant award provides additional funding beyond the original, meritorious grant.
