Peel board supports Peel Regional Police dissolution of SRO program
The Peel District School Board acknowledges the Peel Regional Police's recent consultation to better understand the lived experiences of community members, in particular members of Black, African and Caribbean communities, and their interactions with the School Resource Officer (SRO) program.
Peel Regional Police's decision to dissolve the SRO program is a necessary change to disrupt systemic racism in our school communities. Collaboratively, with students, their families, trusted community partners and staff, we commit to creating learning spaces where all young people feel safe and respected.
