Success! We ended over-policing of our schools

After 6 months of gridlock with the previous board, we held a unanimous vote to stop sending nearly half a million dollars a year from our schools to the police department, and end routine patrols inside of our schools at the request of students and families. Local police departments will continue to respond when asked.
