Budget cuts are causing some changes to the way your child is kept safe at school.
Duval County Schools Superintendent, Dr. Nikolai Vitti, says elementary schools will be impacted the most. Elementary schools will lose security guards this upcoming school year.
"Mainly that is going to be impacted at the elementary schools," said Vitti.
He says due to budget restraints, he'll have to shift security officers from elementary schools to high schools that have higher incidents involving student discipline.
These include First Coast, Raines, Ribault and Jackson, according to Vitti.
Here are official budget numbers given to WOKV by the Duval County School District:
2012-13: $3.8 million
2013-14: $19.6 million
2014-15: approximately $17.8 million (pending ATOSS - Alternative To Out of School Suspension Centers)
"We're looking at about a 2 million dollar reduction compared to last year."
The district says it will lose 65 security officers this upcoming school year. The district tells us the placement of security guards was "strategic" based on a number of factors including building layout, number of students and discipline incidences.
