The Pennsylvania Department of Education has officially announced that the Southern Columbia Area School District has been awarded two Safe Schools grants designed to enhance student and staff safety. The grants are awarded on a competitive basis.  The District was awarded a $23,500 Safe Schools Initiative Targeted Equipment grant and a $20,000 grant to help support and sustain the District's School Police Officer position. The Safe Schools Iniative Targeted Grant will be used to purchase security-related equipment such as video surveillance cameras and HID proximity card readers to be placed on exterior doors lacking that technology. The District is very appreciative of the Safe Schools program as it has provided Southern Columbia Area the means to take extra measures which have enhanced safety and helped deter violence in our schools. Listed below are lists of Pennsylvania schools awarded these grants:
