District, sheriff close to deal

Plan to have resource officer in La Grande School District close to being finalized

The fatal shooting at Reynolds High School in Troutdale Tuesday will push many school districts in Oregon to ramp up security measures in their schools.

The La Grande School District is among those which intends to boost its security, but its plans were in place prior to Tuesday’s shooting. 

The school district began taking steps earlier this spring to add a resource officer, which is expected to be a deputy from the Union County Sheriff’s Office, for the upcoming school year. The law enforcement officer will be present in schools in the La Grande district throughout each school day. 

“We will be beefing up our security,” said La Grande School District Superintendent Larry Glaze.

The La Grande School Board adopted a 2014-15 budget on May 28 which included $80,000 to hire a deputy to serve as a resource officer. The school district would cover about 75 percent of the officer’s cost with the sheriff’s office covering the balance.

A contractual agreement between the school district and the sheriff’s department is now being finalized for the position. 

The resource officer, once on board, will be asked by the school district to evaluate its security and develop a plan which will correct any shortcomings. Improving security at entry points will be one of the officer’s focuses.
