Merkley, Wyden anuncian más de $8 millones para las escuelas de Oregón para oportunidades de aprendizaje seguras y de apoyo

Washington DC – Los senadores estadounidenses de Oregón Jeff Merkley y
Ron Wyden announced an $8,265,004 million federal grant to schools in Oregon to
help provide students with safe and supportive learning environments and
opportunities to help foster their success.  

“Parents and students deserve the peace of mind that while
at school students are safe and being cared for, while also gaining the
important skills and knowledge that will support them throughout their
schooling and adult lives,” dijo el senador Merkley. “This funding from the
Bipartisan Safer Communities Act will go a long way in promoting the wellbeing
of Oregon’s students and providing them with the crucial supports needed for
their long-term success.”

“Oregon students and their families must be able to know
schools are safe places where children can learn free of violence, bullying and
hate,” dijo Wyden. “This federal investment from the Bipartisan Safer
Communities Act will help provide opportunities for students as well as the
knowledge for their families that the classroom is a place where education
comes first.”

This funding comes from the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act
(BSCA) which provided $1 billion for state education agencies (SEAs) to make
grants to provide students with safer and healthier learning environments. This
award is intended to support school and community partnerships that pursue
various solutions to more effectively prevent and respond to acts of bullying,
violence, and hate that impacts school communities at both the individual and
systemic levels.
