Broward County Schools Receives $1M Grant From U.S. Education Department

The Department of Education has granted $1 million in emergency relief to the Broward County public school district -- where 17 people were killed in a shooting last month.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said in a statement on Friday that the grant will aid "in the healing and recovery process."

DeVos said her heart is broken for the victims of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.

She added that she is "committed to helping identify solutions to prevent another tragedy like this one from happening again."

The money is part of the education agency's special funds for schools and universities across the country that have experienced trauma.
