COLUMBUS—State Representative State Representative Mark Romanchuk (R-Ontario) today applauded Attorney General Mike DeWine for recently announcing the School Safety Training Grant Program as part of House Bill 318. As a result, schools in Richland County will have the opportunity to receive more than $116,000.00 in funding for safety efforts, including training for school resource officers, safety and security materials and mental health programs.

The legislature’s investment into Ohio’s public schools, chartered nonpublic schools, and schools operated by county boards of developmental disabilities will be in the form of a non-competitive grant through the Attorney General’s office. Each school will receive a letter from Attorney General DeWine with instructions on how they can access these funds for the remainder of the fiscal year (October 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019).

“The safety of our students is paramount,” said Rep. Romanchuk. “That is why this funding is so important and why I voted in support of this bill.”

A full list of grant awards can be found on the Ohio Attorney General’s website and also attached to this press release.
