Cops to come back to campus
Deep budget cuts to police services and schools caused the School Resource Officer program to be discontinued at El Dorado High School in 2009, but a grant and approval from the Placerville City Council will put an SRO back at El Dorado High and give them time at Schnell School, Sierra Elementary and Markham Middle School as well.
A cost sharing agreement between the Placerville Police Department, Placerville Union School District and El Dorado High School would establish a full-time SRO position.
Placerville Union School District was awarded an 18-month Project School Emergency Response to Violence Grant. Schnell School was the location of an on-campus murder of Principal Sam LaCara in 2011.
