Applications covering more than 1,200 Ohio schools have been submitted for grants to pay for emergency radios and entrance security features.
A program run by the Ohio School Facilities Commission allows districts to receive $2,000 to purchase such an alert system or $5,000 to equip a school entrance with cameras, intercoms and secured doors.
A spokesman says the commission will ask lawmakers for more money if the $12 million allotment is exhausted.
