– Rep. Doyle Heffley (R-Carbon) and Sen. David Argall (R-Schuylkill/Carbon) are proud to announce that the Panther Valley School District will receive $75,000 from the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) Office for Safe Schools’ Targeted Grant Program.
The grant money, which is from a line item in last year’s budget, can be used for salaries, training or equipment.
“Providing these funds to Panther Valley means that we are able to create a space that creates an environment for greater productivity, safety and learning, as well as working to enhance anti-violence efforts,” said Heffley. “I’m pleased that our schools will be able to use this money to preserve the safety of our children.”
“Since I chaired 10 roundtable discussions of the Majority Policy Committee in 2018 about how best to protect our students and teachers, Pennsylvania has invested hundreds of millions of dollars in school safety measures,” said Argall. “I’m thankful these competitive grants will be coming to Carbon County to ensure our schools are a secure place to learn and grow for our children.”
The list of awardees can be found on the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s (PDE) Office for Safe School website.
