HARRISBURG – The Pleasant Valley School District was awarded a Safe Schools Targeted Grant, according to Rep. Jack Rader (R-Monroe). The $37,714 grant will be used to hire and train a school police officer.

“The Legislature has made it a priority to ensure our schools provide a safe and secure learning environment,” said Rader. “No parent should have to worry about their children’s safety when they send them off to school.”

The Safe Schools Targeted Grant Program is administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Education and funded by the General Assembly in the 2019-20 state budget. A total of $7.2 million in grant funding was awarded to schools statewide.
