Schenectady High School

Are police needed in our schools? The next Schenectady School District Board meeting is on Wednesday, March 16 at 7:00 p.m. at Schenectady High School. There is still the question: Police in Schenectady Schools. We are inviting parents, students, and residents to show up at 6:45 p.m. to have their voices heard on this subject.

At the board meeting on Wednesday, February 16, Superintendent Soler spoke about the current police at Schenectady High School and his desire to expand the program. The Superintendent is expected to create a proposal to be voted on by the Schenectady City School District Board of Education. The proposal will include:

– A contract for the next 3 to 4 years with Schenectady Police Department and the City of Schenectady for police officers in our district
– 1 police officer at each Middle School who would also support the elementary schools in their
attendance zones
– 2 police officers at Schenectady High School
– 1 Sgt. Supervisor & Floater (SCLA & WIEC)
– Total Yearly Cost of $300K

Have your voice heard. Let the Schenectady City School District Board know what you want and how you want them to vote.
