2012-2013 School Resource Officer Agreements
Annually the District contracts with nine law enforcement agencies to provide School Resource Officers (SROs) in secondary and middle schools for the purpose of ensuring student and staff safety, and to promote positive relationships between students and law enforcement officers.
The contracts have been sent to all Police Chiefs and the Sheriff. Once signed by the individual municipalities and the county, the contracts will be returned for signature of the Board Chair and the Superintendent. Please see the attachment for a breakdown on schools and costs.
