Kewaunee School District will be able to double down on its security efforts thanks to a recent grant from the Wisconsin Department of Justice. Last week, the district received its second school safety grant from the DOJ, this time for approximately $54,000. The funds received will go towards additional staff training and other upgrades. Kewaunee School District Superintendent Karen Treml says parents have been very receptive to the focus they have placed on safety this year, which also included some changes to how students are dropped off and picked up.
Kewaunee received a school safety grant earlier this year for approximately $64,000. Other local school districts receiving additional safety funding in the second round of grants include Gibraltar, Washington Island, and Sturgeon Bay.
