School Resource Officer at Chequamegon School District - Park Falls Campus.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

Our children, their safety and their education are important to all parents and the community of Park Falls. Since September, Park Falls Police have been summoned to the Park Falls Campus roughly 31 times! We need to support our teachers and administrators, and create a positive and safe learning environment for our students. A School Resource Officer can help us with this need.

A School Resource Officer (SRO) would be a welcome addition to our district. School Resource Officers can be a valuable part of the school staff and an important link between students, teachers, administrators, the police, and the community. They can deter and respond to criminal behavior at school. They can provide security and coordinate response during emergency situations. As role models, they build a bond between young people and law enforcement that provides understanding from both sides. SROs can engage with students at special events and help to create an inclusive environment that is free from bullying. Students who feel safe become better learners and better citizens. School Resource Officers are not meant to be the school disciplinarian, but their presence does help students, staff and administrators focus on education.

The Chequamegon School District - Park Falls Campus would benefit greatly from funding a SRO. We as parents and community members are respectfully asking the Chequamegon School Board, City of Park Falls, and Community Members to create and fund this position. We ask for this because we value the safety and security for everyone in the school community: teachers, administrators, and most of all, our children.
