    Summary

    The State of North Carolina added $35 million in the FY2018-2019 budget year to improve school safety efforts. Funding will be provided as a one-time investment to the following program categories:

    • Student Threat Reporting App
    • Grants for Mental Health Personnel
    • Training for School-based Mental Health Professionals
    • Grants for Students in Crisis
    • Grants for School Safety Equipment. Allowable expenses include:
      • Access control system features (i.e., an intercom to speak to visitors, remote electronic door latching system, external cameras, central lockdown buttons, basic door locks etc.)
      • Surveillance equipment and cameras
      • Security door hardware (i.e., sidelight removal, sidelight frame replacement, change in size of door or window vision panels to limit opening size, bars or grills or other protective measures over existing glass to prevent access, etc.)
      • Security lighting systems
      • Metal detection wands
      • Mass notification telephone systems equipment or other communication devises like walkie talkies or two-way radios
      • Security Panic Systems
    • Grants for SRO Personnel

    Each of these program areas is meant to temporarily address school safety needs while the state gathers more information on what districts and schools require to protect students. The school safety plan stems from work performed by a committee on school safety that came into existence following the school shooting in Parkland, Florida and met regularly prior to the short session.


    Additional funding may be available for student health initiatives. More information will be available in the program's second year as North Carolina needs a Medicaid State Plan Amendment before it can start collecting the funds.
