Minooka High School Board of Education members last week approved a resolution to show support for their School Resource Officer program. Superintendent Kenny Lee spoke with WCSJ.
House Bill 0029 was proposed by State Representative Anna Stava-Murray (D-Naperville) in January of 2021. The bill would ban police from Illinois school properties unless there was an imminent threat. The bill has been tabled by the Illinois House. Lee said the issue of school resource officers should be up to local control.
It is unknown if the representative plans to reintroduce the bill in the future.
