Delaware Senate Bill Aims to Beef up School Security

Posted: May 22, 2018 5:13 PM Updated:

DOVER, Del.- A new state Senate bill seeks to create a $65 million fund to help public and charter schools in Delaware pay for school safety capital projects.

Under Senate Bill 215, schools could apply for money to help pay for the installation of bullet resistant glass or film, screening of individuals or containers and packages that enter school buildings, and the installation of key card entrances and video cameras.

The fund would be administered through the Department of Safety and Homeland Security.

In order to be able to apply for funding, the legislation requires that a school have two trained and armed individuals on staff to provide security services.

Those security staffers would not include a School Resource Officer stationed at a school.

    Progress on Bowers Beach Drainage Project at Mercy of the Tides

    Wrapping up the major replacement of a drainage system beneath an oft-flooded in Bowers Beach has proved to be a slower process than some town officials and neighbors have hoped for.

    A new drainage pipe has recently replaced a smaller and older one beneath Hubbard Avenue, a frequent spot for flooding after heavy rain. The system is intended to help flood waters disperse more quickly into the Murderkill River.
