School Programs

The school resource officers instruct on various topics such as bullying, self-esteem, peer pressure, Internet safety, etc.  Additionally, the school resource officer will work with staff at each of the districts identifying any problems or issues with their respective student populations (i.e. the choking game, morning glory seeds, etc.). 

The school resource officer also serves as a liaison between the school districts and the Sheriff’s Office. They work toward conflict resolution with the students and strive to assist the schools in creating a friendly and safe learning environment. 

Funding for the program is a shared venture between Milton-Union Schools, Newton Schools, the Upper Valley Career Center and the Sheriff's Office.
