Introduction: How to Introduce Your SRO

Leave a comment

You don’t do a great introduction of your SRO for the benefit of your SRO. You do a great introduction of your SRO to benefit your students!

Every person inside a public school has protective responsibility. Well, it’s more like an obligation. When you introduce your SRO as the person who is here to make our school safe, you inadvertently release everyone else of that obligation (or at least that’s what too many hear). Such an introduction doesn’t hurt the SRO, but it diminishes your overall safety efforts because it doesn’t reinforce the necessity that everyone has to play their part in preventing violence.

Use this example as a possible way to introduce your SRO (to benefit your students)!
