SRO funding still in limbo
Although a recommendation has been made to the Cocke County Legislative Body (CLB) that it fund the $24,000 cost of employing armed security guards at seven schools till the school term ends, funding for next year remains up in the air. Asst. Director of Schools Casey Kelly told the Cocke County School Board Thursday evening that he will attend a meeting in Nashville next week where he hopes to learn more about state funding. Currently it appears that the school system budget will be approved before the state determines the level of funding available for each school system. Kelly said by April 26, the Department of Safety and Homeland Security will have officers trained who will then be available to train local School Resource Officers(SRO), on the safety assessment of each school. Following a previous safety assessment, all schools in the school district were equipped with access controls. School Board member Richard Coggins said he prefers an armed guard at the door of each school rather than an SRO who is in a classroom teaching.
