The Missouri School Boards’ Association through its Missouri Center for Education Safety (CES), is pleased to announce the Fredericktown R-I School District has been awarded a school safety grant in the amount of $10,000.
The funds will be used by the district to upgrade cameras systems, increase communication technology between buildings and local emergency teams, as well as other methods to help strengthen the security measures in all of the R-I buildings.
The district competed with other public schools in the state for a limited amount of funding, which is aimed at enhancing school safety in local school districts. The funding for this initiative was made possible through a legislative appropriation to the Department of Elementary & Secondary Education and is being administered by MSBA through CES, which is the state’s school safety center. The CES provides comprehensive support to all schools in Missouri, through training, technical assistance, and other safety related initiatives. More information on this grant and other school safety related programs can be found at the CES web site: www.moces.org
The Missouri School Boards’ Association is a private, not-for-profit organization which exists to help school boards succeed.
