(Sugarcreek, Ohio) – The Garawasy Board of Education is announcing the approval of a non-renewal of an agreement with the Village of Sugarcreek.
The agreement allows for the shared costs of a resource officer between the district and the village. The agreement will be void at the end of the school year.
The board participated in a lengthy discussion when they transferred half of Jason Wallick’s assignment to Safety and Security Official (resource officer). The contract continues to be a piece of the Garaway Teachers’ Association negotiated agreement. Wallick will also serve as an attendance officer and varsity football coach.
School officials noted that while Wallick will be in the school as a resource officer, Sugarcreek police officers, and Tuscarawas County Sheriff’s Deputies will still be present as well
