The heat is on and it’s awakened the Brevard School Board. Sheriff Wayne Ivey’s play to prod them into action has apparently worked, though that remains to be seen.
Earlier this week, Ivey said he was ready to bail out of the school guardian program in order to get the other aspects of his STOMP program passed and in play for the next school year.
Ivey was rightfully frustrated that the School Board has not yet taken action on approving the plan to keep our schools, kids and employees safer. And while they have taken no action and plan a delay that helps in no way at all, a majority of the board indicated to Florida Today that they will pass the STOMP program with the school guardians in play.
Round 1 goes to the sheriff. Round 2 is up to the board and they must avoid the bad idea of a public hearing road trip that will bring them nothing but criticism for doing the right thing.
The time for that is once they have made the decision and actually have news to share!
