Plan would put resource officers in all Seminole County public schools

Vote scheduled for Tuesday

SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. – The Seminole County School Board is set to vote on a plan to help keep students safe in school.

The measure would put a full-time resource officer at all of the county's public schools. That is 21 more than the 2015-2016 school year.

For their part, the school board would pay half of the personnel costs, which will be about a million dollars. 

In addition, the program would also teach drug prevention, internet safety and other life skills.

Tuesday's meeting is set for 5:30 p.m.
