IMPROVED communications between first responders and school personnel is the focus of a $389,000 grant received by the Alamosa School District. The grant award comes through the SchoolSAFE Communications program by the Colorado Division of Homeland Security & Emergency Management.
The grant will help provide for two-way radio communications hardware, software, and extensive training over the course of the grant’s six year program. “This is one of many things Alamosa School District is doing to provide the best working and learning conditions for staff and students to bring our district mission to fruition,” said Alamosa School District Diana Jones.
Jones and Assistant Superintendent Luis Murillo recently led the school district through a strategic action plan. “Alamosa School District’s Mission is to provide a safe, inclusive, challenging, and authentic learning experiences that prepare students to thrive in our community and beyond,” Murillo said.
Alamosa is among nine school districts in the state that will receive funding for improved safety measures through the Colorado Division of Homeland Security & Emergency Management program.
