This is ignorant. Why would a school with less than a thousand students need more than one officer on campus? Most schools in Arkansas that I know of have over one thousand students and have only one resource officer who is employed by the police department and patrols all campuses of the school district.

There are three campuses. How can one officer patrol three campuses?

You think that's ignorant?! Protecting our children is ignorant?! You must not have a clue of what you're talking about. I'm proud CR is sticking up to protect their students. Shows what a great school they really have! And they do have 3 campuses. One officer can't be at all three at once.

I personally went to a school with 3 campuses with a total of around 1500 students and we had one officer and the normal patrol officers in the area were on call if they were needed and the police department brought in drug dogs once a month and we also had random drug testing once a month. Therefore, if there is such a problem with drugs in this school there must be something the parents are doing wrong. Also, how could this be such a great school? There test scores truly reflect the quality of the school. The school is required by the state to post their test scores on their website for public viewing. Please go on there and review the test scores and compare them with other schools' test scores. You will find that they are far under academic standards for the state of Arkansas. Afterall, their average ACT score among students is a 19 which is far below normal and on the verge of having to attend remediation courses in college, and most of their students can barely pass the state end of course exam for biology. These scores are of just as much importance as the safety of the children. Even if you have a safe school; what good is it doing if the children don't have a good enough education to go on to post-secondary school of some sort which is almost required to acquire a job paying over low wages and a beginning level.
