More than 240 Indiana charter schools and public school districts won state grant money Friday aimed at bolstering school security.

That’s more than two-thirds of all the charter schools and school districts in the state.

Gov. Mike Pence announced the recipients of the total of nearly $9.1 million in matching grants schools can now use to hire school resource officers, conduct “threat assessments” or purchase security equipment. State lawmakers created the grant program last session.

    Gee. If we can find the money for this, can’t we find the money to hire more teachers to support smaller class sizes, or help districts in danger of cutting/losing their school bus service?

    Is the law written so that the grant funding will be available every year (unless the legislature revokes the law itself) or is it just another line-item in a budget that can be reduced or eliminated with each new budget?

    Does that mean they will go to jail for bringing cell phones to school then which is kind of like guns? True or False
