Boyle Applauds Federal Violence Prevention Grant for Jenkintown School District
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Brendan F. Boyle (PA-13) was proud to announce the award of federal grant funding to the Jenkintown School District through the STOP School Violence Prevention and Mental Health Training Program, which Boyle fought to secure. The school district will use the money to enhance its social-emotional learning curriculum and anti-bullying program. Congressman Boyle released the following statement regarding the grant:
“Bullying is a tragic epidemic in this country. It not only leaves children with physical and emotional scars, but also deprives them of the learning environment they need to succeed in school. That’s why I was proud to support the Jenkintown School District’s grant application to enhance its anti-bullying programs. Every child deserves to feel safe at school, and Jenkintown School District is taking real steps to ensure that.”
Congressman Boyle serves on the House Foreign Affairs Committee and the House Budget Committee.
