From WisPolitics.com …

AG Brad Schimel today will announce more details on the state’s $100 million school safety initiative during a news conference at a Catholic school on Madison’s east side.

The grants will start going out in June, and public and private schools are eligible for the awards.

Schimel yesterday announced the parameters of the $100 million grant system. That includes two different categories: Primary School Safety Grants, for baseline improvements to schools such as door locks; and Advanced School Safety Grants, for schools that have already met minimum security thresholds.

Of the $100 million available, around $35 million will be allocated for the primary category and the remaining $65 million would be for the advanced one.
