York School District One Receives Federal School Safety Grant!

On Thursday, September 10, 2020, York School District One was awarded a federal Department of Justice Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) grant in the amount of $332,493.  York School District One was only one of 3 districts in South Carolina to receive a COPS grant!  This competitive grant award will allow York School District One to continue to secure our school campuses, implementing a secure badging system for building access by our teachers and staff, as well as purchase additional safety items.


This grant was a collaboration of many community partners, including the York Police Department, York County Sheriff’s Office, York County Office of Emergency Management, York County Department of Public Safety Communications, and the City of York Fire Department.
