HARRISBURG, Feb. 27 – A combined total of $215,000 in school safety grants were awarded to six school districts in the 45 th Legislative District, announced state Rep. Anita Kulik, D-Allegheny.

Rep. Kulik, domestic violence advocates rally at state Capitol

(Jan 14, 2020)

HARRISBURG, Jan. 14 – State Rep. Anita Astorino Kulik, D-Allegheny, and state Rep. Natalie Mihalek, R-Allegheny, hosted a rally to combat domestic violence. The co-hosted Putting a Stop to Domestic Violence rally took place Tuesday morning in the Capitol Rotunda and served as a platform to further discuss the issue of domestic violence, promote awareness and champion current House legislation seeking to combat domestic violence. “The commonwealth lost more than 100 people to domestic violence in 2018,” Kulik said. “This is in no way, shape or form an issue that should be taken lightly. People are losing their lives at the hands of their partners. Today we stand together to say, ‘enough is enough.’” Aside from discussing domestic violence awareness, Kulik also discussed H.B 588 . This legislation would give judges discretion as to whether a Protection From Abuse defendant should wear an electronic monitoring device if the defendant poses a threat of violating the order. Coined “Alina’s Law,” Kulik’s measure originated from the grisly murder of Alina Sheykhet in October 2017. Sheykhet, 20, was killed by her ex-boyfriend just shy of a month after she filed a PFA order against her former partner. Despite her efforts to protect herself, Sheykhet was killed on Oct. 8, 2017, by Matthew Darby at her house on Cable Place in Oakland, according Read more

(Oct 25, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Oct. 18 – A local school district has been awarded $40,000 for school safety and violence reduction initiatives, announced state Rep. Anita Kulik, D-Allegheny. Kulik said Chartiers Valley School District was awarded $40,000 , which will be used to fund the salary of a school police officer. Kulik said the competitive 2019-20 Safe Schools Targeted Grant was awarded through the state Department of Education’s Office for Safe Schools, which offers four types of safety grants: equipment grants, program grants, school police officer grants and school resource officer grants. “Keeping our schools safe is paramount,” Kulik said. “The commonwealth has worked tirelessly to ensure students’ safety. This funding will be another tool in the district’s school safety toolbelt, which has already done a stellar job of guaranteeing the safety of both students and teachers alike.” Kulik said all four grants offered by PDE’s program are aimed at assisting schools in reducing unnecessary student disciplinary actions and promoting an environment of greater productivity, safety and learning; and enhancing anti-violence efforts between schools and parents, local governments, law enforcement and community organizations. This program is separate from the School Safety and Security Grant program administered by the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Read more
