On the Agenda:
A vote to establish a contract with RMC for an independent evaluation of school police data, police calls for service, citations, and arrests. RMC will collect information that will be matched to educational data and include disaggregation of results by year and student characteristics, including gender, grade, age, race, Individual Education Plan status, English language status, and economically disadvantaged status. The results will also be disaggregated by location, officer, and offense category (ex. drug or alcohol offenses). The review will include assessing differences in the frequency and rate of calls for service, arrests, citations, and rates of conversion. Read more about the Agenda item via media coverage
