City, School officer agreement on Monday's board agenda

(Continued)

Knoxville —

 
The objectives of the SRO program include promotion of safe schools; promotion of a positive relationship among the City’s police department, the school district and its staff, the youth of the community and their families; and provision of educational support.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The City shall recruit, hire, train, assign, and supervise the SRO.  The SRO shall not be deemed an employee of the School District while performing services pursuant to this Agreement, and shall not be entitled to any salaries, wages, or benefits from the School District.  The School District shall be given the opportunity, however, to have input into the selection, evaluation, and retention of the SRO.  The School District will be given an opportunity to participate in interviews with finalists for the SRO position, but the City shall have the right and authority to make the final determination of who to hire for the position.
 
The SRO shall comply with all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations.  The SRO shall be subject to School District policies, rules, and regulations, as appropriate, while providing services under this Agreement, including specifically but without limitation, policies, rules, and regulations governing the confidentiality of student and staff records and the use of School District facilities and equipment, provided, however, that the City’s Police Department policies shall supersede School District policies, rules, and regulations when the SRO is conducting police activities.
 
2.     Financing of Agreement.  Upon the City hiring a police officer in conjunction with the requirements of the COPS Grant, the City will place a police officer in the Knoxville School District, said officer to be known as the SRO.
 
The parties understand and acknowledge that the police officer placed in the School District by the City will not be the same officer hired pursuant to the requirements of the COPS Grant; however, the costs to be shared by the City and the School District under this Agreement shall be based on the compensation of the officer hired pursuant to the COPS Grant.
