Unformatted text preview: USITT. Schools will also be provided with a four-hour safety-training course for up to 8 employees and students. This will happen at the school by the contractor. This is designed to provide knowledge of any potential risks and the ways to reduce that risk. The program will be funded with the initial gift of $25,000 provided by the J.R. Clancy Inc., who is the founding sponsor of the program, which should provide the program with a strong continuing base. USITT board of directors authorized a $25,000 matching grant for the program. This program seems very beneficial and will with any luck continue for many years, with the hope of accomplishing USITT’s goal of never having to say no to a school in order to improve safety nationwide.
