recommendation

body

 

SUMMARY:

 

The attached IGA is to provide school resource officers to the District for the 2019-20 school year.  The current IGA expires at the conclusion of the 2018-19 school.  The parties have reached an agreement for the provision of police services for the 2019-2020 school year. The new agreement is similar to the IGA for the 2018-19 school year, with updated compensation to the City, and a new contract effective date to better align with the school calendar.  

 

 

FACTS AND FINDINGS:

 

1.                     The District has agreed to pay $602,206.00 to the City for police services within the District’s schools during the 2019-2020 school year. This payment covers approximately 50% of the costs for the school resource officers during the school year.  This money also helps to offset the cost of other police responses to the District’s schools.

2.                     Total compensation may be adjusted by the District in situations where the City fails to assign an officer to a school for (5) five consecutive student contact days. There are currently sufficient Police Department resources that this situation is not anticipated to occur.

3.                     The assignment of officers within the schools will be a collaborative decision between the District and the City.

4.                     Execution of the IGA is in the best interest of the City of Salem and the public.

5.                     The Agreement allows for modification by mutual consent of the parties. The City Manager may execute amendments to the Agreement if the following requirements are met:  A) The amendments do not substantially expand the City’s obligations; B) The amendments do not broaden the scope of the Agreement to other subject matters; C) The amendments do not increase the City’s financial obligations; and, D) The amendments may extend the term or renew the Agreement so long as any other changes to the Agreement do not substantially expand the City’s obligations. 

  

 

BACKGROUND:

 

The Salem-Keizer School District has contracted with the City of Salem for police services for over nineteen years. School resource officers handle reports of criminal activity and status offenses in and around the schools. The IGA covers nine police officers, including one Corporal and one Sergeant that have been assigned for this purpose.

 

The Salem-Keizer School District serves approximately 42,000 students, with the majority of its facilities located within the City of Salem. The IGA applies to only those schools within the city limits.
