Cleveland Schools to Get $2.5M for Security after Shooting

Metal detectors in district's 110 schools listed as top priority


The state will provide $2.5 million to Cleveland schools to upgrade security after a student gunman shot and wounded four people before he killed himself, the governor's office said Friday.

The money would be available for security upgrades selected by the district, which has identified installing metal detectors in all of the district's 110 schools as a top priority, Keith Dailey, spokesman for Gov. Ted Strickland, said Friday.

The state money will come from its share of a joint state-city fund established to renovate schools and build new ones, Dailey said.
