District gets $64,691 school safety grant

Ozaukee Press Staff

The Northern Ozaukee School District has been awarded a $64,691 school safety grant from the state Department of Justice.

The funds will be used to install shatter-proof film on entryway windows, digital clocks and speakers in hallways and Informacast software that can communicate quickly with staff and parents on campus and off through laptops and other devices.

“We got the full amount for which we were eligible,” NOSD Supt. Dave Karrels told the School Board at Monday night’s meeting.

According to the grant, funds must be used by Aug. 31, 2019. 

The next step will be to figure out how to incorporate the grant-supported improvements into construction projects included in the $14.95 million referendum that was approved by voters in April, Karrels said.

Wisconsin legislators appropriated $100 million in March for private and public schools statewide to improve security after a gunman killed 17 students and staff at a high school in Parkland, Fla.
