Southern Columbia Area was one of 79 public school entities to be awarded a Safe Schools Targeted Grant for Equipment. The competitive grant provided the District with the maximum award, $20,000, which will be used to procure security/safety-related equipment. The District will use its award in the following ways: to increase the number of cameras in the video surveillance network protecting our schools and to upgrade the network's video servers; to create interactive digital maps of the buildings and grounds- the maps will include information such as the location of Automated External Defibrillator (AED) units; and to install a visitor management system in each school. In announcing the awards, Governor Tom Wolfe declared, “Whether students are learning in one of our large cities or a rural community, they need a secure and supportive environment to do their best in the classroom. This funding enables schools and communities to have the resources they need to keep students safe, and it builds on our commitment to kids, parents and teachers across the commonwealth.” The District extends many thanks to the U.S. Department of Education and the Pennsylvania Department of Education for making this funding available to schools!
