FCSD Needs a School Resource Officer

This petition had 434 supporters

Our children, their safety and their education are important to all parents and the community of Fredonia. But since September, Fredonia police have been summoned to the high school 19 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 Fredonia Central School District has had a SRO on the premises in the past. We as parents and community members are respectfully asking the Board of Education to reinstate 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.
