Martin County Schools was recently awarded two safety grants by the NC Department of 

Public Instruction.  The first grant awarded MCS about $130,000 to place additional school

resource officers in each elementary school.  This will allow every MCS school to have a

full-time resource officer on campus.  The second grant awarded MCS about $31,000 to 

purchase classroom safety equipment.  Thanks to Mr. Clay Wagner, Student Services Director, 

for his hard work in writing and submitting these grants.  These grant funds will go a long way

towards making our safe schools even safer!
