How many schools will the additional 6.0 elementary security assistant positions in the budget support?

Question#: 1


Six safety staff members are being added to serve as rovers for MCPS’ 135 elementary schools.  These six new positions will be assigned by zones, and staff will do routine checksand visits to enhance the safety and emergency preparedness support to our elementary schools.  The six new security staff members also will have rapid response responsibilities during critical incidents.

Currently, elementary schools have no direct day-to-day safety staff assigned to them. Cluster security coordinators respond to and assist with critical incidents or emergencies; their time in elementary schools varies and is greatly impacted by the demands of middle and high schools.
