District Seeks Input Regarding Possible Addition of a School Resource Officer

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.

Construction Update: 4/15/16
The roofers have nearly completed the installation of new panels above the library and have been busy tearing off the roof over the elementary gym and adminstrative office areas. Additional panels will soon be delivered and craned for installation above those recently torn off areas. Tear off will next take place on the back side of the elementary portion of the building.
The masons continue tearing off block on the back of the building around the high school gymnasium and have started installation of brick on that area. Additionally, they have completed installation of brick just outside of the band/music room area.
