In 2018, the general assembly enacted Senate Bill 18-269, which
created the school security disbursement program (program) to provide
funding for school districts, charter schools, institute charter schools, and

boards of cooperative services (local education providers) to implement
school security improvements to prevent incidents of school violence.
Pursuant to the provisions of Senate Bill 18-269, the program was
repealed on July 1, 2021. The bill recreates and reenacts the program in
the department of public safety (department).
The bill allows a local education provider to apply for a
disbursement by submitting an application to the department. A local
education provider that receives a disbursement may use the money for
one or more of the following purposes:
  • Capital construction that improves the security of a public
school facility or public school vehicle;
  • Training in student threat assessment for school staff;
  • Training for on-site school resource officers;
  • School emergency response training for school staff; and
  • Programs to help students become more resilient in
meeting the daily challenges they face without resorting to
The department is required to review the applications received
from local education providers and to disburse money to applicants that
satisfy the application requirements. The department is required to give
priority to applicants that commit to providing matching funds for the
amount of the disbursement received.
The bill recreates and reenacts the school security disbursement
program account within the school safety resource center cash fund and
directs the transfer of money to the account to pay the disbursements.
Each disbursement recipient is required to report to the department
concerning its use of the money, and the department is required to
annually provide a summary of the reports to specified committees of the
general assembly. The disbursement program is repealed, effective July
1, 2032.
