Spartanburg School District Three’s School Board of Trustees have worked together with the communities of Cowpens and Pacolet, and Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Department to enter exciting new partnerships to insure the safety of all students in the district. 

These partnerships will enable the District to have a school resource officer (SRO) in every school in the district.

The Town of Cowpens will be providing officers for Cowpens Elementary and Cowpens Middle Schools.  The Town of Pacolet will be providing an officer for Pacolet Elementary School, while Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Department will provide officers at Cannons Elementary and Clifdale Elementary Schools, Middle School of Pacolet, Broome High School and Daniel Morgan Technology Center. 

Through this collaboration all schools in District Three will have a fulltime School Resource Officer in their building. 

Stated Steve Bolin, town administrator for the Town of Cowpens, “We are excited about this opportunity to work with District 3. Adding the new SRO’s at Cowpens Elementary School and Cowpens Middle School is a great opportunity to allow our officers to work closely with the children and to build a relationship of trust and comfort.”

“Our Board of Trustees continuously places the safety of our students, staff and families as a top priority.  Through the partnerships with the Town of Pacolet, Town of Cowpens and Spartanburg County, we are now able to place a highly trained school resource officer in each of our schools,” said Jodi Gilmer, chairperson of the Board. 

Mike Meissner, Mayor of the Town of Pacolet, added, “The partnership between the school district and the Town of Pacolet will encourage a closer bond between the citizens of Pacolet and the Pacolet Police Department, while also enhancing the safety of our schools.”

The 2018 – 2019 school year begins August 20.
