Agenda Item Summary: ACPS is focused on providing an equitable, high quality education to all students. The Department of Facilities and Operations (through the Office of Safety and Security Services) contributes to this overall strategic goal by working to remove unsafe school environments as a potential barrier to learning. The Office of Safety and Security Services is providing this report for the February 2023 through April 2023 period.
Background: Collection and reconciliation of school safety data is a requirement of both school board policy and our school law enforcement partnership memorandum of understanding (MOU). • Virginia code 22.1-280.2:3 requires the school board in each school division in which the local law-enforcement agency employs school resource officers to enter into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with such local law-enforcement agency that sets forth the powers and duties of such school resource officers, and other stakeholders. The MOU details the requirement to collect, review and reconcile specific data related to incidents on school campus grounds. o As it relates to the MOU, there is also a requirement to provide a summary of the quarterly meetings that occur with APD in regards to the SRO program: ▪ The most recent SRO/MOU Quarterly Meeting occurred on May 03, 2023
Recommendation: The Interim Superintendent recommends that the School Board review this quarterly report.
