Mikulski To Announce Federal Funding For School Safety Included In Consolidated Appropriations Act

BALTIMORE – At 10:30 a.m. onWednesday, January 22, 2014, U.S. Senator Barbara A. Mikulski (D-Md.), Chairwoman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, will join Baltimore County Public Schools Superintendent S. Dallas Dance, Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz and Baltimore County Police Chief Jim Johnson at the Baltimore County Board of Education to announce funds in the federal checkbook included in the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2014 for the Comprehensive School Safety Initiative to improve school safety .

The Comprehensive School Safety Initiative allows for communities to work together to improve safety while children are in school through grants to develop and implement locally-developed school safety plans. Communities can use grants to purchase technology, hire personnel, and provide training to carry out the plan. School safety plans allow schools to be prepared for the worst by creating and maintaining a response strategy in case of a violent or active shooter situation and to prevent violence by reducing bullying, drug abuse and other problem behavior.
