"10.) Out of this appropriation, $12,000,000 the second year from the Lottery Proceeds Fund shall be disbursed to school divisions to provide additional school security grants.  The Department shall develop guidelines for the administration of these competitive grant funds.  These funds may be used for any school security activity or school security equipment purchase."


(This amendment provides $12.0 million the second year from the Lottery Proceeds Fund for competitive school security grants. There is an existing $12.0 million School Security Equipment Grant Program that can only be used for capital related security needs due to the funding source of the program, tax exempt bonds. These additional funds could be used to fund grants for any school security need, including leases, subscriptions to software services, and human resources.)
