Board to consider additional resource officers
By David Meade
Anderson School District One Board of Trustees recognized students from across the district who had a perfect score on new testing, held first reading on new overtime requirements and discussed school safety during their regular monthly meeting Tuesday.
The Board also announced that they will honor former coach and administrator Dale Martin by naming the Palmetto High Football Field for him. Martin worked in public education as a teacher, coach, administrator and board member for 34 years. He also coached Palmetto’s football team when they won the State 3A Championship in 1970.
Due to the recent shooting incident at Townville Elementary School, Superintendent David Havird told board members that he wanted to have further and open discussion on school safety, which has been a priority for the district.
Havird said additional cameras and new access doors have been installed at all fourteen schools in the district and the District office. The District is also in the process of bidding out a second project for safety and security, primarily cameras for all three football stadiums.
