The Vigo County School Board meets tonight in the administration building on Wabash.
On the agenda will be the approval of the individuals who will provide school security as part of the new initiative to put an armed guard in every school.
Those that will be taking the jobs include active duty city police and sheriff’s deputies, as well as retired law enforcement officers.
West Terre Haute police will be stationed at West Vigo Elementary.
Those security officers who are not active duty law enforcement officers will have police powers through the Vigo County Sheriff as a “special deputy” or on “reserve” status.
The school corporation will pick up half of the cost with the city and county picking up the rest.
