Cephas announces more than $43,000 in grants to help strengthen safety at Ad Prima Charter School

State Rep. Morgan Cephas announced today that $43,500 in safe school grants has been awarded to Ad Prima Charter School in Philadelphia. 

The Pennsylvania Department of Education awards the competitive grants to prevent and reduce violent incidents, to purchase safety and security-related equipment, and to provide for training and compensation for school resource and police officers.

"Whether students are learning from home or in the classroom, providing them with a safe learning environment must always be a top priority," said Cephas, D-Phila. "This funding is critical in helping Ad Prima Charter School strengthen its overall safety while still offering its young people a quality education."

Ad Prima Charter School is to receive $25,000 in equipment grants, plus $18,500 in program grants.
