Ms. Jenkins explained that Board Members all agree that school security is a priority, and they recognize the State's allocations for school security improvements, but the allocation is not enough to support our schools. She stated that the Board should be able to provide more transparency and articulate the needs and deficits that exist. She explained that the Sheriff's Office is taking on a burden in supporting our schools and it is difficult for the district to keep up as well. Ms. Jenkins stated that in order for the district and the Sheriff's Office to continue to advocate at the state level for more funding to keep students safe, we need to know the why. She explained that she understands the why but would not be able to speak about it articulately. She stated that she understands the increased expenses within the BCSO MOU but would love to be a better advocate for more funding for school safety and encourages more transparency among Board Members/Sheriff's Office to become better partners in advocating for more funding.

Ms. Campbell stated that the Board and FSBA has advocated for additional funding every year because the costs are greater than what is provided by the State. She explained that it is a need and we have to continue to advocate for it as it is a priority for everyone.

Ms. Wright explained that she is passionate about school security and it has to be the Board's number one priority to make sure our students are safe. She stated that the BCSO does a great job to ensure our students are safe and asked Ms. Hann how much it costs them to provide this service to our district. Ms. Hann responded that it costs them $1.2 - $1.3 million over the reimbursement we provide. Ms. Wright thanked our Sherriff's Office who go above and beyond to protect our students and stated that she will always advocate for safety.

Mr. Trent stated that knowing the BCSO's costs shows that this is a community effort. He explained that we always have to look for better ways to add security for our students because that is what is important.

Mr. Susin agreed with everyone’s comments and stated that the BCSO has gone out of their way to actually cover other cities and municipality that have not been able to do so due to constraints in hiring. He explained that the Sherriff has set a progressive way for the SRO's to move up within the agency when they have selected it as a career path. Mr. Susin stated that the schools really appreciate their specialists which has been the most well-run security program for our district because they make our schools feel safe.
