Indiana Kicks Off Safe School Week

This week is designed to focus on school safety measures while providing a safe learning environment. 

(Indianapolis, Ind.) - Today is the start of Indiana Safe School Week. 

Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb decided to align the state safety week with the national Safe School Week. 

This week is designed to focus on school safety measures while providing a safe learning environment. 

“It is the responsibility of all citizens to enhance the learning experiences of young people by helping to ensure fair and effective discipline, promote good citizenship and generally make schools safe and secure." 

Last month, the Indiana Secured School Board approved more than $19 million in matching state funds through the Secured School Safety Grant administered by Indiana Department of Homeland Security. 

This grant marked the largest investment in safety initiatives for Indiana schools. 

Services that are provided from this grant include, funding for school resource officers (SROs) and law enforcement officers in schools; equipment and technology; active event warning systems (no matching requirement); firearms training for teachers and staff that choose to allow guns on school property; threat assessments and implementation of a student and parent support services program.

For more information on the Indiana Department of Homeland Security and Safe Schools Week, you can visit state and national websites.
