High School Image

In October 2018 the Riverside Township School District applied for a school safety grant through the Burlington County Board of Chosen Freeholders. This grant was limited in scope - for high schools only - in Burlington County, NJ. We have been awarded a total of $977,000 to be used for high school security and safety improvements. We are currently working with our architect, the Riverside Police Department and local vendors to begin making these improvements.

The money will be used for the following:

  • Ballistic film.
  • Additional exterior lighting.
  • New fencing.
  • New main entrance door.
  • Replace, add and upgrade door access system.
  • Replace interior door locks.
  • Exterior signage.
  • Exterior and interior strobe lighting.
  • Replace, add and upgrade cameras.
  • Expand burglar/intrusion alarm.
  • Expand and upgrade two-way communication PA system K-12.

We thank and appreciate the Freeholder's for partnering with the Riverside Township School District in an effort to make our schools a safer place for everyone.
