Assemblymember Wallace Announces Additional Funding for Cleveland Hill School District
Today, Assemblymember Monica P. Wallace (D-Lancaster) announced that she has secured an additional $50,000 in state funding for the Cleveland Hill School District.
“Few investments have a greater impact than ones made to public education,” said Wallace. “The state needs to ensure that our local schools receive the funding they need to provide the best educational environment for our children. By working with Cleveland Hill Superintendent Jon MacSwan, we identified several security projects that the district has been in need of funding to complete.”
Cleveland Hill plans to use this funding to install emergency lighting on the outside of each building, attach lockboxes to the outside of each building, install cameras in high-profile locations that currently have no coverage, and increase school resource officer safe-school training.
“I recognize the critical value of having a secure environment for the students, teachers, and faculty of the Cleveland Hill School District,” said Wallace. “As a parent, I expect my children to have an educational environment free from distractions, and I commend the administrators of Cleveland Hill for identifying ways to protect their students and educators so that quality education remains the focus.”
This funding is in addition to a $230,000 increase to foundation aid for Cleveland Hill that Wallace secured in the 2017-2018 state budget.
