Funding Secured for Outdoor Improvements at Sherwood Elementary

Through the extensive work of the Sherwood School Resource Officer, Deputy John Cameron, and Sherwood’s District Bookkeeper, Glenda Marconett, the school has been awarded up to $30,000 by the COPS Grant through the School Violence Prevention Program.

The money will be used to install playground fencing around the elementary school playgrounds. This is a 75/25 grant where the district will commit up to $10,000 for the project to be completed. Fencing the playground area will help keep our students safer in a contained area and with a barrier from potential outside people and animals.

This project was prioritized as #6 of 9 as an exterior priority for facilities on the school’s fall of 2021 survey. #1, 2, and 4 are already completed or in-progress.
