The Northern Ozaukee School District has received the second grant in the state Department of Justice’s School Safety Grant  program.

Northern Ozaukee is one of 66 districts statewide to receive an award in the second round of the program, according to the DOJ website.

The district will receive $58,302, which is the amount it requested.

The program awarded $3.97 million to schools in the second round.

District Supt. Dave Karrels said the new grant funds will be used to install security speakers and software.  

“Our staff dedicated significant time and worked very hard to receive another safety grant,” Karrels said.

“Finding creative ways to get these funds really shows the dedication and leadership of our staff members to make it happen.”

To qualify for the funds, districts are required to  send 10% of its full-time teachers and counselors to a DOJ-approved, 12-hour adolescent mental health training class by Aug. 31, 2020.

Schools must also establish school safety intervention teams.
