SIOUX FALLS, SD -
This fall, officials are taking a new approach to keep your sons and daughters safe in school.
In the past, School Resource Officers were assigned to specific schools. Now, SRO's are in quadrants, allowing a team of officers to monitor schools.
This new approach is to help keep up with the growth we're seeing in the Sioux Falls School District.
"You still have primary SRO's assigned to schools. Say one day a week you ask them to visit another school and spend the day there, so they get a broader sense of the staff, the students, the geography of the school," Lt. Matt Burns with Sioux Falls Police said.
Officials announced this change at the end of the last school year.
Tonight on KELOLAND News, Brady Mallory talks to a local principal about this new approach.
