School Safety

Safe schools are fundamental to students' school successes and achievements. Consequently, providing a safe and orderly school environment remains an ever-present priority of the Sunflower County Consolidated School District. School safety will be addressed through a comprehensive approach that focuses on prevention, intervention and response planning. Systems and programs are in place that create caring school communities where all students and staff feel safe and supported. Key to the process of building and maintaining safe schools is the development of active partnerships between schools and communities.

The School Resource Officers (SRO) provides support to schools in the areas of physical security, emergency operations and school discipline.  Sunflower County Consolidated School District currently staffs (3) School Resource Officers (2) School Safety Officers. Our SROs are certified law enforcement officers who are responsible for assisting administrators with proactive approaches to all aspects of school safety. 

The School Resource Officer (SRO) is specifically trained in and performs three main functions:

  • law enforcement officer
  • law related counselor
  • and law related educator.  

Our School Safety Officers (SSO) are non-commissioned officers who are assigned to the school for routine safety and security duties.
