DUBOIS CO., IN (WFIE) - Dubois County is getting a boost in funding to make their schools safer.
The school system will receive just over $150,000 this coming school year in matching grant money from Indiana Secured School Safety Board.
The money will be distributed to each of the schools in the county according to size.
"Our safety plan is not something cast in a three-ring notebook and set on the shelf," said Superintendent of Southeast Dubois County Schools, Rick Alen. "It's a very fluid document. It changes every year and there's constantly new ideas, new strategies, and so we tried to build the grant to where we build that equipment to meet those goals and strategies."
School officials say they already have a safety plan, and this money will be used to make necessary improvements to the school so that it fits with that plan.
