However, districts have the opportunity to increase this amount by $4,000 for completing seven additional steps under the S.C.H.O.L.A.R. Program (Schools and Colleges Heading Organizational Leadership in Accident Reduction). Willis ISD has successfully met these additional requirements for three years in a row. Grant funds will be used to purchase a safety software program for use with all staff as well as a trailer for transporting maintenance equipment. Jennifer Walker, Willis ISD’s purchasing agent and safety ambassador, presented the award to Mr. Harkrider and the Board of Trustees at a recent meeting.
