The Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association is collaborating with the Wisconsin Department of Justice and the Office of School Safety to determine the processes and best practices for keeping interscholastic athletics and after school activities as safe as possible.

In an statement released earlier by Attorney General Brad Shimel, he stated the administration of the Office of School Safety and associated grant process are being established in consultation with educational and law enforcement experts.

The formal grant application process will be announced next week. Any school interested in applying for grant funding may submit a short letter of interest via email to the DOJ at schoolsafety@doj.state.wi.us.

For more information on the Office of School Safety please access the DOJ website at:
