Laveen is once again a recipient of the state’s School Safety Grant providing funding for five School Resource Officers (SRO) and a counselor.
M.C. Cash, Trailside Point, Paseo Pointe, and Rogers Ranch schools will continue to have their SRO position funded; Cheatham will receive a new SRO position. Laveen School will receive funding for an additional counselor.
Based on the proposed funding level, the Laveen District will receive about $2.1 million worth of funding over the course of the three-year grant cycle. Funding and the associated positions begin in January.
The State Board of Education approved Laveen’s requests at their December 13, 2019 meeting.
