• Which Massachusetts school districts will get cut of $7.2M in safety grants

    By: Mike Saccone

    Updated:

    BOSTON - The Baker-Polito administration on Tuesday awarded $7.2 million in grants to more than 140 school districts across the state to upgrade security equipment and technology.

    The money will go toward items such as exterior door locks, surveillance cameras, alarms and active shooter detection systems. 

    "These investments will provide much needed safety resources to our students and teachers in schools across the Commonwealth," Governor Charlie Baker said. "We appreciate the opportunity to collaborate with school officials to understand how we can better protect our schools, and we are pleased to have worked with the Legislature to award this round of grants. We are hopeful that we can continue this discussion as we consider this year's budget to build on these efforts in more communities." 

    The funding was included in the Fiscal Year 2018 supplemental budget. 

    "Our administration is grateful for the input and expertise from school superintendents, mental health experts and law enforcement officials that helped us develop a package of school safety initiatives," Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito added. "It is crucial we continue to give Massachusetts schools the resources and tools they need."

    The budget bill signed by the  Governor also included $7.5 million in additional aid for school districts to hire social workers, mental health counselors and psychologists.
