The Commission offered grant funding to reimburse schools that purchased emergency communications systems or entrance security systems for their buildings between January 2013 and March 2017. All chartered Ohio schools - public and private - were eligible to apply for grant funding. Expenses were approved up to $2,000 for one emergency communication system per eligible school building and up to $5,000 for the purchase of an entrance security system at one main entrance per school.
This grant program is now complete. The deadline was October 14, 2016.
