In recent months, Gov. Bill Lee and the Tennessee General Assembly announced a one-time $40 million grant for Tennessee Public Schools and $14 million grant for Tennessee Non-Public Schools to invest in school safety improvements. This funding is an opportunity for schools to make necessary infrastructure upgrades and program implementations to create a safe environment for students and teachers.

What Can Schools Spend This Money On?

    1. Emergency Operations Planning
    2. Improving physical security (e.g. cameras, door locks, communication/emergency notification apps, etc.)
    3. School Resource Officers
    4. Violence Prevention Planning (e.g. Behavioral Threat Assessment)
    5. Safety Training for Staff Members
