Letters will be sent out to Ohio schools from the Attorney General’s Office with information for the schools to access the funds for the remainder of the fiscal year (Oct. 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019).

“The grants, in conjunction with the standards for school resource officers, in the recently enacted H.B. 318, will help every school in Ohio better prepare for the security of the school and the safety of their students – and will do it in a manner that each school, working with local law enforcement, determines best meet their needs.” Cupp said.
