RES/CHMS Selected for School Resource Officer Pilot Program #vted #cesuvt #resvt
Richmond Elementary School and Camels Hump Middle School have been selected to be a part of a new program via the state of Vermont and the Vermont Agency of Education.  Corporal Mark Moody, project facilitator, will be working with both schools throughout the pilot. He will review program objectives, schedules and how to best get started in moving the project along. Based upon the results of CESU (Chittenden East Supervisory Union) needs, Corporal Moody’s activities will consist of:
  • Crisis Plan Review and/or development ;
  • Advise on developing localized training plans for crisis intervention;
  • Technical assistance on building a Safety Community Outreach Plan.

A significant piece of this work will be to ensure that the needs of all students, including those with disabilities, are addressed in all current or newly developed plans.

Corporal Moody is long-time School Resource Officer (SRO) who founded the Vermont Youth Officer’s Network and remains that organization’s Chair. He is also an active member of the Vermont School Crisis Planning Team and has intensive law enforcement training on school safety issues. In the role of AOE Resource Officer Liaison, Corporal Moody will provide technical assistance to schools around connecting the work of the school resource officer with school based activities, building connections with community responders, and increasing the capacity of the Crisis Response Team with an increased focus on students with disabilities.

We're excited to be a part of this program and are looking forward to the learning experience.
