 Silver Creek Central School will hold a roundtable discussion to solicit community stakeholder feedback regarding the use, roles, and responsibilities of the school resource officer at SCCS.

For more information, you may call the superintendent’s office at (716) 934-2603 x1900.

 Silver Creek Central School District contracts with the Chautauqua County Sherriff’s Office with regard to school resource officer and other law enforcement functions at school events and activities.

Effective July 1, 2019 New York State Education Law § 2801-a was amended to require that every school district that employs or contracts with law enforcement shall define the relationship between the school district, school personnel, students, visitors, and public or private security personnel. Such contract or memorandum of understanding must be consistent with the code of conduct, define law enforcement’s responsibilities and involvement within a school and clearly delegate the role of school discipline to the school administration.

We seek your input as we develop our law enforcement contracts for the 2019-20 school year. Please provide any input to Todd A. Crandall, Superintendent of Schools, at tcrandall@silvercreekcentralschools.org, on or before December 5, 2019. You may access copies of Education Law Section 2801-a(10) below, along with a copy of the District’s 2019 and Draft 2020 contracts.
