Flagler County will continue to share the costs of School Resource Deputies for Flagler Schools in the upcoming school year. But the school district’s cost will be almost $200,000 more than last year.

The district’s share of the cost for the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office to supply 11 SRDs, a commander, a sergeant and nine crossing guards will be $1,376,678.

Tom Wooleyhan, the district’s director of school safety, presented the numbers to the School Board at an information workshop on June 18.

The district will share 50% of the cost with the county for 10 SRDs, the commander and the sergeant. For the district, that’s a cost of $1,162,391. The district will be charged the full cost of $142,389 for an additional SRD for the Rise Up alternative school program and 100% of the cost of the nine crossing guards at $214,287.

Costs include salaries, benefits and equipment. The numbers do not include overtime costs, however.

One of the reasons for the higher costs this year, FCSO Chief Mark Strobridge said, was last year’s presenting costs for crossing guards were inacurate.
