    Attorney General Brad Schimel announced a list of 20 schools that have been awarded the next round of grants through the Wisconsin Department of Justice School Safety Grant program, administered by DOJ’s Office of School Safety. Combined, the 20 schools will receive $1,382,045, which will be spent on building safety improvements, as well as training for faculty and staff. More grants will be awarded soon.     “Momentum to improve school safety, training, and law enforcement collaboration continues with today’s school safety grant awards,” said Attorney General Schimel. “In just over two months, the public safety professionals at DOJ, in conjunction with dozens of educational stakeholders, established a meaningful way to improve school safety, through physical improvements to school buildings, and a focus on mental health training for school faculty.”     Out of the 20 schools chosen, Wautoma Area School District made the list and was awarded $84,435.
