Rearm our Student Resource Officer (SRO)
MCCSC is the only school district in the entire state of Indiana who's board has disarmed its trained student resource officers (SRO), in May of 2021. Soon after the board's decision, South had two gun incidents in two weeks, possibly a precursor to something worse. The board turned down free metal detecting wands from the state in 2018 and opted for an SRO program, but then weakened the safety of its students and staff by disarming the trained officer put in place for protection. In light of the Michigan shooting, common sense needs to prevail. After numerous emails ignored from the board, stagnant meetings with the superintendent, we refuse to be landlocked. This decision must be reversed. If we cannot keep weapons from coming through our doors, the only chance our children and their educators/staff have is the one officer who has trained to run towards gunfire and put his/her life second to everyone around them.
