HARTFORD — A new round of grants to enhance school security were announced Friday by the governor’s office.

The state is bonding nearly $10 million toward the effort. Some 51 municipalities awarded grants, must collectively foot an additional $7.8 million. Some 182 public and private schools are impacted.

A list of what the money will be used for was not available. Some of the more prevalent items during the first round of school security grants awarded by the state since 2013 have included door locks, security cameras, fencing, lighting, access controls and panic buttons.

The program was created in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting which took the lives of 20 first graders and six educators in December 2012.

To date, the state has made $53 million available to over 1,200 schools in three separate rounds of funding. The program is administered by the Connecticut Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection and utilizes state bond funding to reimburse municipalities for a portion of the costs associated with the improvements.

Districts do not necessarily get everything they asked for.

“We applied for much more than that amount,” Stratford Schools Superintendent Janet Robinson said of her district’s $30,199 award in this latest round for one school. Of that, the state has pledged to pick up $18,983 while the town must pay $11,216.

“It will be a scaled down project as we did not receive the requested amount,” Robinson said. “We asked to update cameras, improved access control with a new identification system and continue work from the first two rounds of grants in all 13 schools for a request of $75,355.”
