Superintendent Randy Booker announced at the April 10 school board meeting that the city and school plan to continue their discussions about the student resource officer (SRO) proposal at an April 22 city-school liaison meeting.
The meeting is open to the public and will take place from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the PUSD board room. School Board President Amal Smith noted that the liaison meetings have been a longstanding forum for discussion and have helped build a good partnership with the city. The mayor, vice mayor, school board president and vice president, city administrator, and school superintendent all attend these meetings to discuss issues of mutual concern.
Booker noted that this was only a discussion forum, and that no decisions would be made at the meeting, although proposals could be brought forth to school and city council members in May.
