NEW STOP Funding Webinar

On Wednesday, March 25th at 1 pm AASA is proud to partner with Sandy Hook Promise, the National Association of School Psychologists, the National Association of Elementary School Principals and the National Association of Secondary School Principals to offer an important webinar on the STOP School Violence Act grant program.


After the tragedy at Parkland, Congress acted quickly to create a new funding stream to support state and local efforts to deter school violence. The passage of the STOP School Violence Act authorizes $100 million in funding for schools to improve school safety in 2019. This webinar will explain how to apply for the funding and how the dollars can further school safety efforts and mental health programs in your district.

Hear from Merv Daugherty, superintendent, Chesterfield County Schools, Va., who received a STOP grant in 2019, as he shares his experience applying for the grant and how his district will be using this funding to improve the mental health of his students. 

Hear from Terri Bennett of Sandy Hook Promise who is an expert on federal grantwriting and provides considerable technical assistance to STOP grantees. 

This webinar is free to AASA members.
