House Bill 318: Lorain city schools receives grant for ‘School Safety’


LORIAN, Oct. 4, 2018: The Lorain City School District (LCS) has received a grant from Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine’s Office to be used for school safety training as a result of House Bill 318, which was signed into law in August 2018—the bill appropriated $12 million for school safety initiatives, training, and school climate programs. 


The district received $5.65 per student, in a total amount of $37,233.50. 


“I hope that you find this funding useful to aid in your important responsibility to safeguard Ohio’s children while they are in your care each day,” AG DeWine said.


 In the parameters of House Bill 318, districts can use the funds for efforts such as school resource officer training, active shooter and school safety training, educational resources and training to identify and assist students with mental health issues. 


“We are appreciative of the generous contribution to our district from the Attorney General’s Office, and grateful for its continued support and understanding of the importance of school safety,” Chief Operations Officer Jeff Hawks said. “Through the passing of House Bill 318—and these funds allotted to the district—we can continue to focus our efforts on safety and mental health training within our schools.”


The district also took advantage of a free program provided by the AG this summer, when drone footage was captured of each school campus and provided to our operations office in order to provide a more complete picture in terms of safety. 


LCS will continue to seek out and apply for opportunities to increase the safety and security of our scholars and staff, especially when it comes at no cost to the district.
