- The School Safety Program is a state-funded grant that places School Resource Officers (SROs) and/or Juvenile Probation Officers (JPOs) in selected schools to contribute to safe school environments that are conducive to teaching and learning. School Safety Program officers maintain a visible presence on campus; deter delinquent and violent behaviors; serve as an available resource to the school community; and provide students and staff with Law-Related Education (LRE) instruction and training. The goal of LRE is to prepare students for responsible citizenship by promoting the development of those characteristics that lead to healthy behavior. LRE is the instruction about rules, laws and the legal system which actively involves the students towards its goal.
A Note on the 2015 School Safety Program Competitive Application:
The 2015 School Safety Program Competitive Application is the last new grant application that will appear on the current Grants Management Enterprise (GME) system. Because of this, you will notice some discrepancies or fields that may look incorrect, but will not impact the submittal and review of your application. Please note the following two items on your application.
- Under the “Application Contact” page, you will see that the begin/end dates in the application read 7/1/2013 – 6/30/14. This cannot be changed. DO NOT alter these dates. Your application will be processed and ADE staff are aware that these applications are for projects beginning 7/1/2014 and ending 6/30/15. This will be changed for successful applicants.
- In the “Payment Schedule” page, this too cannot be altered to reflect a true schedule of July – June payments. We recommend that applicants put their entire project amount in the month of June only. This will be changed for successful applicants.
We apologize for any confusion this may cause applicants, but this is completely a function of the current system being decommissioned after July 1 of this year. There is no way to change these issues at this point, but neither of these should hinder your ability to successfully submit an application and have it evaluated.
Should you have any technical issues submitting an application or errors in submitting, please contact (602) 542-3901 to reach a member of the Grants Management Team who can assist you.
