Action Alert

 

Please join us

Central High School
1130 W Chestnut St
Louisville, KY 40203
 

The Jefferson County Public School (JCPS) Board recently defunded school police guards (SROS - School Resource Officers) that help keep our children safe. Yet, the school board protects themselves at public meetings with multiple police officers. 

Violence continues to grow in Louisville. On September 22, 2021, at a bus stop, an Eastern High student, Tyree Smith, was shot down and murdered. Gangs are a problem in Louisville and in our schools. 

It seems the school board members value THEIR lives more than the lives of our children.

It is time to restore the police presence (SROs) in our schools to protect our children. 

Please join us at the JCPS meeting on Tuesday, October 5th at 5:30 pm, at Central High, 1130 W. Chestnut St. 

We encourage you to join us, STAND UP and SPEAK. Please join us in prayer at 5:30pm, and then go inside to speak at the 6pm meeting. 

If you plan to speak please call (502) 485-3342 before the meeting (Mon-Fri 8am-4pm). Tell them you want to address the topic of: 
X.O.6. Acceptance of Flexible Focus Funds from the Kentucky Department of Education - Safe and Drug Free Schools . You can speak for up to 3 minutes. 

If you do not know what to say at the meeting, simply state any of the facts below.   

* Why is it that you protect yourselves, but not our students? The school board has multiple police officers on duty at these board meetings, at least 1 per board member. Yet you defunded school police guards (SROs) only 1 officer per school to protect hundreds of students. Out of a $1.8 Billion budget, and with the Ky Dept of Education funds for Safe and Drug Free Schools, you can surely fund SROs to protect our students. Restore SROs in our schools. 

* On September 22nd, Tyree Smith, an Eastern High School student, was murdered. Louisville and JCPS have a gang problem. It is time to restore SROs in our schools. Use the funds for the Safe and Drug Free Schools from Ky Dept of Education and from your $1.8 billion budget to fund SROs to protect our students.

* JCPS has a gang problem. We need SROs restored.

* Why did the JCPS Board vote to defund SROs in our schools and yet you have multiple police officers at these board meetings? It appears you value your lives more than the lives of our precious children. It is time to restore SROs in our schools.

Please arrive early, and join us for prayer at 5:30pm Tues Oct 5 at Central High.

Please spread the word far and wide.
