Shusterman announces school safety grant awarded to YSC Academy

WAYNE, Oct. 21 – State Rep. Melissa Shusterman, D-Chester/Montgomery, announced that YSC Academy, Chester County Intermediate Unit 24, will receive $33,681.15 through the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s Safe Schools Targeted grant program.

The money is part of $7.3 million in competitive grants that were awarded to schools statewide to prevent and reduce violent incidents, purchase safety and security-related equipment, and provide training and compensation of school resource and police officers.

“Ensuring the safety of our children is among my top priorities,” Shusterman said. “A safe classroom is a successful classroom, so I’m confident that these funds will positively impact each student at YSC Academy.”
