Conklin: More than $530,000 secured for school safety and mental health resources

STATE COLLEGE, April 26 – Stronger security measures and expanded mental health resources are coming to schools in the 77th Legislative District, thanks to new grant funding of nearly $537,000, state Rep. Scott Conklin, D-Centre, announced today.

Conklin said the funding from the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency will ensure schools have the resources needed to maintain a safe and secure environment.

“Learning is never a one-size-fits-all proposition, but one thing is universally true – all students need a safe and supportive environment to learn and thrive,” Conklin said. “This new funding will ensure our schools have the resources they need to provide that environment, so students and staff are free to focus on academic success.”

  • Bald Eagle Area School District – $154,131.
  • Centre Learning Community Charter School – $70,000.
