District Receives Federal Funds for Recovery Support: The Marysville School District is grateful for the announcement that the federal government will provide more than $2.1 million through the U.S. Department of Justice to provide additional recovery support to the Marysville and Tulalip communities, following the shooting at Marysville-Pilchuck High School one year ago.
The grant is awarded through the Department of Justice’s Office for Victims of Crime Antiterrorism and Emergency Assistance Program. Funds will support crisis response costs, both incurred and anticipated, for trauma care and other services the community needs.
The Marysville School District will receive $535,075 for additional counseling, support and trauma specialists, and development of a trauma-informed system of care.
The District thanks Senators Murray and Cantwell, and Representatives Larsen and DelBene, who wrote a letter to the Department of Justice in support of the state’s request for a grant to help with trauma care and recovery costs.
