State officials have awarded the Moon Area School District $9,764 in grant money to support programs that prevent incidents of violence in the district.
Pennsylvania Senator-elect Matt Smith, D-Mt. Lebanon, and Rep. Mark Mustio, R-Moon, announced today that the district will receive a portion of the nearly $480,000 Safe Schools Target Grant.
Districts are eligible to receive up to $15,000 under the program. The program assists schools in developing anti-violence efforts, and in providing professional instruction to staff, according to a joint statement from Smith and Mustio.
From Moon Area Superindent Donna Milanovich:
“The district is extremely thankful for the support from the Pennsylvania Department of Education on this endeavor. Safety in our schools starts with a positive environment, and this grant will help to further achieve this goal.”
