BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — In a robocall transmitted Wednesday night throughout Palm Beach County, school superintendent Dr. Donald Fennoy announced that the school district is “thrilled” to report that a police officer will be in every school on the first day of school.
There is no discussion in the message about the second day of school, the third day of school, the eighth day of school or the 97th day of school.
Local police departments county-wide are assisting the school district with first day coverage.
With the Parkland massacre still fresh in the minds of parents and older students, the flash over substance approach to school safety — in the wake of State Attorney Dave Aronberg’s report that the Palm Beach County School District Police force is inadequate — sends a strange message to stakeholders.
This is Fennoy’s first year as Superintendent.
