School districts around Ocean County are receiving much needed federal funds to help recover from Superstorm Sandy. 

Brick Township High School (Brick Schools)

A total of $1.25 million went to districts around the state.  Some totals include close to $37,000 in Toms River, $212,000 for Brick, $39,000 in Central Regional and $25,000 in Seaside Heights.

The money was made possible through a $1.25 million grant award from the U.S. Department of Education’s Project School Emergency Response to Violence (SERV) program.

"Our communities have exhibited tremendous resilience in the face of the after-effects of Superstorm Sandy and they should be commended for all they have done to support our students and their education,” said State Education Commissioner Cerf in a press release.   “These funds from the U.S. Department of Education will help support the continuous recovery of school communities in New Jersey and we are grateful these grants were made available.”

The money can be put towards overtime for teachers, counsellors, and law enforcement and security officers and other staff, emergency transportation costs and other Sandy-related costs.
