School Resource Officer Program

District 64 this fall will be welcoming a School Resource Officer (SRO) to our middle school communities. The Board of Education at the August 28, 2017 meeting approved a one-year pilot to introduce the SRO presence to both Emerson and Lincoln. The SROs are another means to help strengthen family/community partnerships that are essential to supporting District 64’s comprehensive social emotional learning curriculum for all students addressed as part of the 2020 Vision Strategic Plan.

Read more here about the SRO pilot program and the introduction of new curricular materials to support social emotional learning, called Second Step.

Superintendent Laurie Heinz, school principals, and local law enforcement presented an overview of the SRO program at the September 2017 PTO meetings. View their presentation below.
