Chartiers Valley School District and Scott Township approved an agreement Tuesday night to have the township's police department provide a school resource officer at Chartiers Valley Intermediate School.

The school board unanimously approved the contract at its meeting Tuesday; Scott's board of commissioners did the same. The school resource officer will begin training on Jan. 28 and will start at the school on Swallow Hill Road sometime in February.

Scott's school resource officer will be Ed Povirk, 59, a 21-year veteran of the Scott police force who retired in 2005.

The Collier commissioners last week approved two school resource officers, one of whom will be assigned to the high school-middle school campus, the other to the primary school, both of which are on Thoms Run Road. The two officers from Collier are scheduled to start at the district schools on Feb. 4, said Collier Chief Tom Devin.

The school district has budgeted $270,000 for the school resource officers, said Nick Morelli, business director at Chartiers Valley. The district will use reserve funds to pay for the cost of the school resource officers, he said.

School board member Beth McIntyre said she is happy that the school resource officers will soon be in place.

“This is something we have been working on. Scott and Collier have been very collaborative with us,” McIntyre said.
