Grand jury weighs in on Vallejo schools safety

By From page A3 | June 14, 2014

FAIRFIELD — After reviewing data and information on several websites and after meeting with staff at six high schools in Solano County, the Solano County grand jury issued a report Friday recommending that Vallejo high schools put cops on their campuses.

The report also recommended that campus site safety officers wear their school-issued photo identification cards and that Vallejo school district’s superintendent and high school principals place priority on controlling defiance and disruptions in classes.

The report, titled Security Impact on Graduation Rates in Solano County High Schools, noted that in 2012-13, Rodriguez High had a dropout rate of 1.6 percent, Fairfield High had a 6.6 percent dropout rate and Armijo High had a 4.2 percent dropout rate.

    I am a little lost with this article. If this report is recommending safety officers on Vallejo campuses, why give us statistics concerning Fairfield schools? And cops on campuses will not be cheap.
