Indian River School Board President Charles Bireley says the District will hire security personnel for all of its schools for 2013-2014.
Each of the district’s 15 schools will have either a qualified campus security officer or a school resource officer on duty when the new school year begins in September.
Bireley says the security plan was drafted with the welfare of Indian River students in mind. A campus security officer will be employed at each of the district’s seven elementary schools, three middle schools and two high schools. Southern Delaware School of the Arts, a magnet school for students in Grades K-8, and the Howard T. Ennis School, a special facility for students with moderate to severe disabilities, will also have security officers.
The duties of the campus officers will include regular patrols of the school’s building and grounds, implementation of comprehensive school safety plans and frequent checks of locks on exterior doors.
