Schimel announced plans for the money Tuesday. The Legislature approved $100 million in grants for school safety in the wake of the Parkland, Florida, shooting but districts only applied for about $56 million.
Nearly all of the state’s public schools are expected to get some money while 40 percent of private schools applied.
Schimel created a second round of funding to give out the remaining $45 million, which he says will be awarded starting in October. He says it will advance baseline mental health and physical security improvements made in the first round.
