File Attachment:
Background: At its June 2020 meeting, Resolution 2021R-003 was introduced and adopted with amendments by the Milwaukee Board of School Directors. The Board's action terminated all contracts with the Milwaukee Police Department for the services of School Resource Officers and other personnel.

Through this action, the Administration was directed to develop recommendations in collaboration with staff, community partners, community members, and other governmental entities for utilizing money previously allocated to contracts for serving and protecting the safety of MPS students.

The Administration held a series of meetings during October and November to finalize the collaborative recommendations. The final recommendation is to use the remaining funds in the amount of $184,774 to enhance the use of restorative practices within the district.
