Urges School Districts to Be Ready to Apply for Grants

In November 2018, voters approved the Securing Our Children’s Future Bond Act, and today Senator Steve Oroho expressed relief that the New Jersey Department of Education has proposed preliminary guidelines that will allow schools to prepare to apply for funding.

“School districts can finally begin planning  forward to get the money taxpayers committed to keeping students safe,” said Oroho, who sponsored legislation placing the referendum on the 2018 ballot.

“Protecting our children is paramount, and I urge school administrators to prepare to apply for the funding now that the NJDOE has indicated what the procedure will look like,” said Oroho (R-24). “Everybody has been waiting to get the criteria from the department, and I’m thankful the administration has moved this forward. This is good news.”

The $500 million referendum included $50 million allocated for school security projects at K-12 schools.

In September, Oroho joined Senate President Stephen M. Sweeney and Senate Republican Leader Tom Kean on a letter to Gov. Murphy. “Our students and our schools cannot wait any longer” for this critical funding to be made available, the letter said.
