No longer funded by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).
The purpose of the Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities Program (SDFSC) was to support programs that prevent violence in and around schools and the illegal use of alcohol, tobacco, and drugs; involve parents; and coordinate these efforts and resources with other federal, state, and community entities. Grant funds were allocated based on the poverty rate and student population to school districts to establish, operate, and improve local programs of school drug and violence prevention, early intervention, rehabilitation referral, and education in elementary through secondary schools.
Project SERV (School Emergency Response to Violence)
Project SERV funds short-term, education-related services for local educational agencies (LEAs) to help them recover from a violent or traumatic event in which the learning environment has been disrupted. The short-term grant is called Immediate Services Grant and is the grant awarded to Colorado in fall, 2013. The application for funds is to be used only by a school district that has had its learning environment disrupted by the September, 2013, Colorado flood and is applying for Project SERV funds to support education-related services.
