State Rep. Haraz N. Ghanbari (R-Perrysburg) announces nearly $350,000 for local school safety and security made possible through legislation he advocated for to enhance school security in Wood County and across the state. The funding, stemming from House Bill 687 which Ghanbari co-sponsored, included $100 million for this grant program.

“I’m pleased to report that the Ohio House is delivering on protecting students and staff across both Wood County and the state,” Ghanbari said. “Our schools will be able to use this funding for a variety of purposes including security improvements to ensure the safety of our children and teachers.”

The Ohio K-12 School Safety Grant Program had thousands of schools apply to be able to receive these funding awards for security upgrades and enhancements.

The following Wood County Schools will receive the following allocations:

  • Bowling Green City School District - $100,000  
  • Lake Local School District - $143,660
  • North Baltimore Local School District - $50,000
  • Rossford Village School District - $55,500

Another application round is expected in the coming months where schools that have not yet applied will be given priority.
