Earlier this year, the San Jose Unified School District trustees voted to end the district's school resource officer (SRO) program, despite the advice of the superintendents and most of the district's principals. When the trustees voted to end the program, however, it did not plan for how to provide security without those SROs.

Now, this week, the board is expected to vote to reapprove the memorandum of understanding with the city to hire off-duty San Jose police officers as private security guards with a proposed term that will end with the calendar year.

According to local news, the board will also determine whether the officers will be on campus all-day or whether they will only be on campus to provide security for sporting events and other large gatherings.
