According to WILX-TV 10, a number of mid-Michigan schools are set to receive thousands of dollars from the state for security upgrades.

The state of Michigan is giving $25-million in grants to select public and private schools to upgrade their door locks and other security features in the wake of mass shootings across the country.

State police received over 400 applications from schools requesting nearly $70-million, which is much more than the $25 million authorized by the state legislature and Governor Rick Snyder earlier this year.

There are some schools that automatically qualify to receive the funds, while other schools have to match the funds by the state.  Schools were chosen for several different reasons.
