November 2018 Update

D11 voters passed the 2017 mill levy override request on last year's November ballot. As part of the MLO plan, the District plans to phase back in the presence of Colorado Springs Police School Resource Officers (SROs) at the middle school level. At the regular Board of Education meeting on October 24, 2018, the Board approved a request to amend the original MLO plan. This amendment will accelerate the hire of two SROs for the 2019-2020 school year, as opposed to hiring all five middle school SROs in the 2020-2021 school year. This plan amendment is also preferred by the Colorado Springs Police Department, since it would be difficult for them to train and deploy five SROs in one year, due to the shortage of police officers.
