The Delavan-Darien School District is among 23 schools and districts that will receive a combined $1.6 million from the first round of the Wisconsin Department of Justice School Safety Grant program

Delavan-Darien is set to receive $102,708.

A second round of grant funding will be distributed utilizing the $45 million in remaining school safety money available. The second round of funding will focus on advanced initiatives to bolster student mental health, the creation of local School Safety Intervention teams, and additional physical security upgrades. K-12 schools, public and private, are encouraged to apply for the next round of grants, which will be awarded starting in October.

“Across the state of Wisconsin, parents should be confident that when they send their children to school this fall, their kids will be going to the safest schools in the nation,” said Attorney General Brad Schimel. “Thanks to a renewed partnership between educators, mental health professionals, and law enforcement, communities will be more ready than ever to respond to a crisis and keep kids happy and safe in their school.”
