City, School District to Continue to Evenly Split SRO Costs


School Resource Officer (SRO) positions within the Fond du Lac School District will continue to be funded at current levels. That decision comes after the School Resource Officer Advisory Committee met Monday and agreed to continue the current funding model – which splits the cost of the SRO’s 50/50 between the Fond du Lac School District and the City of Fond du Lac for a 12 month period. Recent discussions included the possibility of the district opting to pay for only nine of the 12 months of the year, since school is not in session during the summer, even though SRO’s continue to work in the schools in the summer. That led to concerns about losing an officer in the schools because of the decreased funding. Currently, there are five School Resource Officers in the district – two at Fond du Lac High School and one at each of the District’s three middle schools. All officers have responsibilities at the elementary school level as well.

In addition to maintaining the current funding model, the Advisory Committee also agreed to assemble a sub-committee that will identify summer opportunities where the SRO’s can assist the District and the City to help continue to engage and connect the youth in the community. The sub-committee will bring recommendations to the full committee in June, and agreed upon activities will begin this summer.

The Police Department said in a statement “The partnership between the City of Fond du Lac, the Police Department and the Fond du Lac School District is strong. Safety in our schools and within the community is a paramount issue, and we will continue to work together in a collaborative fashion to ensure it.”
