Douglas County has agreed to distribute $10 million to neighborhood, charter and private schools in Douglas County to increase school safety and mental health. St. Katharine Drexel Catholic School was awarded over $20,000 for safety improvements. Safety is more than just securing the building.
We are also hiring an extra teacher to help with emotional and behavioral support for our students. Our own Mrs.Lupher, Mrs. Keller and a few students were featured in their announcement video. The video starts at 9 minutes 40 seconds in. Read and article from the Denver Post and an article in the Highlands Ranch Herald about the grant.
