WI Attorney General awards nearly $4M to schools for student mental health

(WQOW) – Several local schools are in line to receive thousands of dollars from the state to bolster student mental health.

Attorney Schimel Brad Schimel announced 66 schools and school districts will receive $3,969,793 from the second round of the DOJ School Safety Grant program.

Locally, those schools include Bruce, Durand-Arkansaw, Elk Mound, Ladysmith, Mondovi and Pepin.

To qualify for these funds, applicants must agree to send 10 percent of full-time teachers and counselors to a DOJ-approved, 12-hour adolescent mental health training by August 31, 2020.

Schools must also establish school safety intervention teams.

Under this second round, grant funding is awarded on a per-student basis, according to student enrollment as reported to the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI). Each school or school district that applies will receive an estimated $55.21 per child, but no awardee will receive less than $10,000 nor receive more than $2.5 million, in order to ensure all applicants receive sufficient funding to make meaningful physical security improvements.

Just as we settle down, however, we return back to an active weather pattern that will bring several chances for more accumulating snow over the next couple of weeks.
