Burlington School Board Eliminates Full-Time Police Position

Anna Huener, Staff Writer April 13, 2021
On April 6, 2021, the Burlington School Board voted unanimously in favor of the Safety Task Force’s SRO recommendation, with one member abstaining. The task force proposal states that they were “charged with ending the full time use of the SRO.”  Although the approval by the board means various changes will be made throughout the district, limiting the power of Student Resource Officers (SROs) is the most notable recommendation.
