Deadline Today to Apply for NYC Nonpublic School Guards


The deadline to apply for the upcoming school year’s nonpublic school security guard program, in which New York City reimburses for the costs, is Monday.

To qualify, a yeshivah or school must have 300 or more students in grades prekindergarten through 12th grade in the 2017-2018 school year. Schools with more students get reimbursed based on the school’s enrollment.

The $19.8 million program is currently in its first year. So far, 163 schools qualified for the reimbursement.
