School follows city's lead on resource officer


Workers from Sande Construction in Humboldt race against some ominous storm clouds early last Thursday morning to lay steel roof panels at the Clyde Mease Elementary School in Dakota City. Fortunately, most of the heavy rain held off and workers were able to get a full day’s work completed. See this and other photos at www.humboldtnews.com. Humboldt Independent photo by Kent Thompson.

By KENT THOMPSON
The Humboldt Board of Education followed the lead of the Humboldt City Council last Thursday morning, approving a 28E agreement to hire a School Resource Officer.
The police officer hired to serve the position will be an employee of the city of Humboldt, with the salary of the officer split between the city and the school district. During the school year, the officer will be located at the school centers, high school, middle school, Taft and Mease Elementary centers and the Humboldt Alternative School.
“We have been getting input from School Board member Kyle Kluender (an Iowa State Patrolman), the attorneys for the city and school district, city officials and school administrative staff,” Humboldt School Superintendent Greg Darling said. “Two of our administrators have worked in districts where there was a School Resource Officer,” Darling told the Board members.
