Hand Held Metal Detector Program

Per Indiana Governor Eric J. Holcomb’s announcement on July 9, 2018, the State of Indiana will provide one hand held metal detector device per every 250 students in a school corporation at no cost to the districts.

To accurately collect the desired quantity and delivery information for each school in a district, the State requests schools input information into the K12Indiana purchasing portal’s demand aggregate tool.

Schools may request their state-funded hand held metal detectors September 24-October 5, 2018. After that time, schools may purchase devices at the discounted rate.

Because this is the only way for school districts to receive their devices, it is critical that each district have the necessary individual(s) registered on www.K12Indiana.com as soon as possible. This will ensure the decision maker(s) are informed throughout this process.


 Schools with existing user accounts with K12Indiana may log in to place their orders at www.K12Indiana.com. If you are uncertain if you have an account or have trouble accessing your account, please contact info@k12indiana.com.
