Webinar on Comprehensive School Safety Initiative: Grants to Develop Knowledge
A webinar will be held on
May 13, 2014, at 1 p.m. Eastern time on a school safety grants initiative. In
response to a congressional request, the National Institute of Justice has
launched a research-focused initiative to increase safety in the nation’s
schools. Approximately $47 million is available for schools to get grants for
large- and small-scale projects that implement and test various approaches to
enhancing school safety. Register for the webinar to learn how your school can
partner with researchers to assess the effectiveness of projects to keep
schools safer. Register at https://www.etouches.com/ehome/index.php?eventid=90972&.
