Anti violence money coming to Washoe County schools

Nearly a year after a fatal shooting rampage in Sparks, the Washoe County School District has gotten a federal grant totaling close to $974,000, to support programs designed to keep students safe. Governor Sandoval announced the grant on Friday. The grant will allow ten participating schools to share in the services of three new counselors, and two new social workers, to cut down on violence. Last year’s shooting at Sparks middle school helped the district get the grant.
