School Resource Officer
The Herkimer Central School District has contracted with the Herkimer Police Department for a full-time officer to be present at the school to act as a School Resource Officer (SRO). The presence of the SRO is intended to enhance the safety of our school campus, support the welfare of our students, provide educational programming, and build positive relationships with students. The presence of an SRO does not mitigate the rights of students that are outlined in this handbook, nor is he/she permitted to assume the duties of school administration and staff. The agreement for services was adopted by mutual consent of the Herkimer CSD Board of Education and the Village of Herkimer.
The Herkimer Central School District is the beneficiary of a grant secured by Catholic Charities to provide prevention services to the students of Herkimer Central School District. Research-based educational programming and group sessions in the realm of preventing violence and substance abuse are provided through this grant. Referrals for individual prevention services are received through the Child Study Team. Parental consent is required for prevention services to be provided at an on-going basis.
