The Whitesboro Central School District is set to get some security upgrades with the help of state funding.

State Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi and state Sen. Joseph Griffo announced Wednesday that they’ve secured an additional $175,000 to improve safety measures and security in Whitesboro schools.

“It is important that we do all that we can to help make sure that students and staff are safe while they are in school,” Griffo said in a news release. “This funding will help the Whitesboro Central School District to make important security enhancements such as hardening entry ways and creating a new, integrated security system. I know that these improvements will benefit the entire school community.”

“Whitesboro Superintendent Brian Bellair and other school district officials certainly made the case for additional funding that will provide a better school environment for students and staff alike,” Brindisi said in the release. “I want to thank them for everything they do to ensure students there receive a sound education.”
