Over the last year, the Arcanum-Butler Local School District Board of Education and Administration have been researching and discussing the possibility of adding a full-time School Resource Officer or SRO. The discussion began at the county level as a potential way to help address the increased drug activity in the county and schools, assist districts in prevention/education of youth-related social and behavioral issues, and provide an additional layer of security in keeping our students and staff safe. Both District and Village representatives attended the same county meetings and upon hearing about the possibility on a county-wide level, suggested a partnership between the District and the Village of Arcanum as a better option. This option could possibly provide a full-time SRO and the partnership itself could further strengthen the community/school relationship.
