Danville and Pittsylvania County schools will get school security equipment grants.
Gov. Ralph Northam awarded $6 million in grant money to 340 schools in 70 school divisions across the state Thursday to help protect students and teachers.
The grants will pay for video monitoring systems, voice and video internal communications systems, mass notification systems, visitor-identification systems, access control systems, two-way radios, security vestibules and other security upgrades.
Danville has been awarded $16,637 for Grove Park Preschool, and $160,372 will be for Chatham, Gretna and Kentuck elementary schools in Pittsylvania County.
