Dist. 186 Not Renewing Contract with SPD for School Resource Officers


A Springfield School Board member says that a measure to scrap a contract with Springfield Police is a cost savings measure and will not disrupt student and staff safety.

 

Springfield Budget Director Bill McCarty revealed that District 186 will not be renewing a nearly quarter-of-a-million dollar school resource officer contract.

 

School Board member Scott McFarland says instead the district will enter into contracts with off-duty officers.

 

That is expected to save the district $180,000.

 

McFarland says its part of the efforts of the district to shore up a lack of funding from the state to the tune of $5 million.
