Cedar Grove Christian Academy receives $24,000 Safe School Targeted Grant

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 18 – State Rep. Jared Solomon today announced Cedar Grove Christian Academy has been awarded $24,924 in state funding for school safety and violence reduction initiatives.

“The safety of our schools and our children is always a top priority. It’s unfortunate in this time such measures must be taken, yet it is required to ensure students and staff are in a safe environment,” Solomon said. “This grant provides Cedar Grove with the opportunity to remain a nurturing and safe space for students to learn and grow.”

The grants were included in $7.3 million in competitive 2019-20 Safe Schools Targeted Grants awarded by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. Grants are awarded to prevent and reduce violent incidents, purchase safety and security-related equipment and to provide for the training and compensation of school resource and police officers.
