Governor Corbett, Along With Berks County Legislators, Education And Business Leaders, Discuss Passport For Learning Block Grant Program

The fourth element of the Passport for Learning will help school districts and parents feel safer about the environment where their children spend the greater part of the day. Children cannot succeed where they don't feel safe.

In January, Governor Corbett met with school superintendents, teachers and security personnel to listen to their thoughts about and suggestions for improving school safety.

"With different needs across the state, each district should determine where investments should be made," Corbett said.

Funds could be used for school safety and security efforts, including training for employees, enhanced security measures and partnerships with local law enforcement.

The governor was joined today by state Sen. Mike Brubaker (R- Lancaster), as well as Rep. Becky Corbin (R- Chester), Rep. Jim Cox (R- Berks), Rep. Tom Killion (R- Chester), Rep. Jerry Knowles (R- Berks/ Schuylkill), Rep. Mike Tobash (R- Berks/ Schuylkill), and Rep. Marcy Toepel (R- Montgomery).
