Letter from Deputy Kuentzel and Director of Safety & Security Michael Andreas


SRD - School Resource Deputy

The SMS School Resource Deputy is Deputy Chip Kuentzel.

This is my third year as the School Resource Deputy for Sarasota Middle School.

What is the School Resource Deputy Program?
The S.R.D.* Program is a nationally accepted program involving the placement of a Law Enforcement Officer within the educational setting and the physical school setting. This allows the officer to become involved in a variety of functions: 
    As a visible, active Law Enforcement figure on campus dealing with 
        any law-related areas. 
    As a classroom resource for instruction in the following areas: 
        safety programs, bullying, drug awareness/prevention, criminal 
        law, internet safety and various other educational programs. 
    As an extension of the principal’s office in dealing with a variety of 
        school situations. 
    As a resource for the students which will enable the students to 
        be associated with a law enforcement figure in the school 
    As a resource to teachers, parents, and students for conferences 
        regarding problems or questions on an individual basis. 
    As a counseling resource in areas which may effect the educational 
        environment or be a campus safety related issue.

My priorities are to provide a safe learning and working environment for all students and staff. I am also very adamant that the students will respect staff and each other. I will be available to assist in many different matters. I am looking forward to a safe school year.
