The NRA has a recommendation. They say there should be police officer stationed at each school. There are plenty of retired / off duty police and/or military personnel I did a quick computation. Assume a school has 300 students - and they have one police officer @ $15 per hour - 8 hours per day ( or 2 @ 4 hours each) - @ 180 days per year. That would come out to about 30,000 dollars or about $100 per student. The school I went to - West Genesee - has 1 high school, 2 Jr High, and 4 elementary schools - with a total of 4,826 students. Therefore, WG would need about 10 officers. Based on my computation -that would be an additional $3000,000. The budget for WG is about 70.5 million dollars. Therefore that 300 grand is just a 1/2 % increase of the budget. The tax rate in WG is about 25/1000 assessment. So a $100,000 house would owe about 2,500 dollars in school tax. A .5% tax rate would cost that homeowner about an additional $125 per year. Is it worth it?
