Proposed Resolution from the Duval County Council PTA

Proposed Resolution from the Duval County Council PTA

Dear Local Units,

Your DCC PTA Board voted to present local units with the following Resolution On Arming Teachers. We are fulfilling our mission as a child advocacy organization and need your help. Please review the resolution with your general membership and hold a vote. We will then do the same at our April General Meeting (4/24) where you can let your local unit’s voice be heard. If the resolution passes, it will be presented to the DCPS School Board at their May meeting. Please contact us with any questions.

RESOLUTION

Whereas the Student Code of Conduct prohibits weapons on school property and teachers should set the example, and

Whereas teachers are not trained to be law enforcement officers and do not have the time or resources to obtain proper training, and

Whereas it would be extremely difficult for law enforcement officers to determine who was legally armed during a crisis, and

Whereas the responsibility of teachers should be to protect those students in their classrooms, not to get involved in a shooting incident, and

Whereas the Duval County School Board does not favor arming school personnel, and

Whereas the Sheriff of Duval County does not favor arming school personnel, and

Whereas the Mayor of Duval County does not favor arming school personnel, and

Whereas the Governor of Florida does not favor arming school personnel, and

Whereas other security measures such as keeping exterior building doors locked and keeping classroom doors locked while classes are in session should be implemented, and

Whereas teachers carrying guns could be overpowered by a student or a group of students, and the weapons could fall into the wrong hands, be it therefore..

Resolved that the Duval County Council of PTAs supports the employment of armed School Resource Officers (SROs) as the only armed personnel to aid in the safety of our students.
