Background: On July 27, 2017, the Board directed the Administration and the Office of Accountability and Efficiency to engage an external evaluator to conduct an evaluation of the School Resource Officer (SRO) program. Consistent with Administrative Policy 2.15 - Research and Survey Proposals, an external evaluator was selected from the District’s pre-approved evaluator list and the evaluation’s design and methods were formally reviewed and approved by a committee comprising staff from the Division of Research and Evaluation.

On May 22, 2018, a preliminary report of the evaluator was presented before the Committee on Accountability, Finance, and Personnel and on June 19, 2018 the evaluator presented and discussed his report.

During the course of the SRO evaluation, the Milwaukee Board of School Directors raised a question about active shooter issues and this topic was added to the scope of the work. The attached report and presentation contain the work of the evaluator regarding active shooter issues for schools.
