Once again, Janesville people hide all the problems that happen around the city. Sometimes I get the impression that some people is just blind to the fact that J'ville has problems. If j'ville didn't have problems in the schools they wouldn't be thinking about hiring security officers. I work in a school district here in wisconsin and we have both a police officer and security and it works out fine. For people that want to backlash School Security officers and say we belong in a store in wrong. You have no idea what being a School Security officer is about. But if one thing goes wrong in one of the janesville schools the first question one of you will ask is, "How come there wasn't more security or police?" You people wait for something to happen in order to change it. Some communities like beloit change things before stuff happens. I praise beloit for doing an excellent job with the security of their schools. perhaps J'ville school district or some of you that don't believe in security officer should contact them and ask them why is their security program so good.
happycamper, The police don't fund these positions, the tax payers do. We will pay for this no matter who approves it.
Use the 26.7 Million that is in reserve. How Nice to have that kind of money in a reserve. No wonder we have to pay & Pay so they can build up there funds.
The school districts job is to teach! Let the Police create, fund and man the positions. The school district seems to think their job is to create more jobs.
It is not a security officer. It is a security director. Beloit has one and Beloit also has one of the most secure districts around. They are invited to speak to many districts around Wisconsin to try and help other districts up grade their security. A district should have someone in a position that concentrates only on security. Most districts of our size or smaller even, have one. I believe our district used to have one then it became part of the athletic directors job, now part of someone elses job. I would assume that they are being compensated for their part-time role. A part-time security director is not enough these days. Someone needs to be directly in charge of this. It is not a Rent a Cop and they would not be directly placed in any school. They would be a security expert who's only concern is the safety of the thousands of students in Janesville. Please understand concepts before maiking rude comments or decisions on them.
Hey Bubbles, I am so glad that you have the ability to assume incorrectly. I have 2 children that have never been home schooled. I support teachers, principals and administrators who do their job. If the teachers don't want to deal with me they should quit their jobs...
No, bad idea. These kids today don't have any respect for for the police in the schools let alone a security officer. The kids are gonna treat the "Rent a Cop" like you know what. The only thing good about this idea is maybe saving some money. But now look at it like this a security officer gets a little out of control and mis handels a student or says something out of line to one of our kids. The kid tells his or her parents and they get mad about a security officer response to the situation , then all we have is upset parents and law suites that we as tax payers are gonna get stuck with one way or another. If the police can't do the job and I am not saying they can't then why are they there in the first place. Security guards belong department stores, empty building, apartment building and anything that needs to be watched. Cause all their gonna do anyway is call the police and have them handle the situation. Bad idea. You want to get security then get em out patrolling the streets helping out our police departments control our streets and whats going on. Thats just my 2cents on the situation
hey ken Don't have kids and if you do....homeschool them. I am pretty sure you are the parent that no teacher wants to deal with
A security officer? For what school? We have police on the campuses now! Budgets are high enough now but you could save a bundle and not put a tunnel under Milwaukee street and have the exercisers go to the intersection of Milwaukee and Wright road or cross when its safe as they are doing now!!
Sure spend the money and skip LUXURY"S like air conditioning
Yeah, Here's an idea. Let's fire all the teachers, and hire a security guard for every class room. When the kids get unruly or get out of their seat without raising their hands, force the parents to put the kids on Ritalin, or someother psychotropic medication. Make the officers make every kid feel good, even when they are not doing a good job. Have the secuity officers blame parents when the kids are misbehaving at school, even when the school isn't doing their job. Finally, do not let the secuity guards say anything true or contriversial like God created the universe, Sex before marriage is wrong, Abortion is murder and that calling in to work sick when you are not is wrong.
Okay, well, while you guys argue about dollars and cents I'd like to comment on the presence of a school-supervised security officer, often lovingly referred to by the students as a rent-a-cop. One od the reasons I think this would be a good idea is that this could reduce police presence in the schools. Police presence has no place in schools of children (no offense, JPD, you boys in blue are the bomb) It is never a positive influence in classrooms- police don't know students like a teacher does. What starts out as a push and shove can be defused and the kids sent to class- or what happens in Milwaukee, a cop can taser a student, shove a teacher to the ground for interfering.SO yes, to the guard. Give the teachers a little muscle for discipline if it will keep law enforcement out of the schools.
What are you all talkin bout? They just said they are going to spend some left over money?Lol. They seem to have money! The tightwads!Lol. Cant afford this, Wanna cut that, Wanna add this and cant give the teachers a decent raise but can spend it on any thing else. They are pulling wolleys over the taxpayers!
Rob Peter to pay Paul? Where is the money going to come from for this. Open your wallet taxpayers! If we allow the school district to spend as they go,the check for "nonbudget expenses" will be a huge tax burden.
If the district has to make cuts, then where are they going to come up with the money for the security chief.
