Harrisburg –State Senator Tom McGarrigle (R-26) and Rep. Jaimie Santora (R-163) today announced the awarding of a state grant to boost safety in the Upper Darby School District.

The state Department of Education awarded the district a Safe Schools Equipment Grant in the amount of $20,000.

“A safe school promotes a climate of greater productivity and learning. When students and staff feel safe, they are better able to engage and be productive,” said McGarrigle.
