Board Votes to Approve Position of SRO


By Tammy Moore Teague
In a 5-0 vote, the Mansfield School Board approved the motion to accept Superintendent Robert Ross’ recommendation to create the position of School Resource Officer.
“The Governor’s School Safety Council recommends we do this,” commented Ross. Although the district has already made great strides in adding layers of security to its campuses, this “is something that needs to be done.”
The board agreed, and at the recommendation of Board President Rick Nicodemus, will meet in a study session to decide how to proceed.
Another topic of discussion at Monday night’s meeting, was door security at the middle school building. Presently, the door locking system works concurrently with the bell’s timing. However there have been occassions if a student is running late, for example, that they have been locked out. “It’s a long way to walk for an 11 year old kid,” commented Middle School Principal Floyd Fisher. The board took action by voting to approve the purchase and installation of additional cameras and monitor software through KLC Security.
