Wiscasset Superintendent of Schools Terry Wood announced in Tuesday night’s school committee meeting, the school department will tap American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds for a school resource officer.
The SRO job lost in the municipal budget vote in June.
Wood’s written report to the committee states in part: “Our (ARPA) grant has been approved and we have budgeted a school resource officer for the next two years. I am working with the town manager and police chief to see how we can contract services through the town and when this position will start.”
