District 75 Receives School Safety Grant Funds

Mundelein School District 75 is receiving $130,000 of a $262,699 grant awarded to the Mundelein Police Department to improve school safety measures. The funds, part of the STOP School Violence Act, will be used to secure entries, add panic buttons, and add strobe lights for lock-downs in areas where the intercom cannot be heard, for example, gyms, cafeterias, and band rooms.

“School safety is a top priority for everyone, this grant gives Mundelein a unique opportunity to make some significant safety enhancements and provide a more secure environment to our children,” commented Mundelein Police Chief Eric Guenther.

“We appreciate Police Chief Guenther for alerting us about the grants and for sponsoring a grant writer to coordinate the application process,” said Andy Henrikson, Mundelein School District 75 Superintendent.
