(Louisville, KY) - School resource officers won't be on duty when JCPS students return to class on August 14th. 

The Jefferson County Board of Education split on a vote Tuesday night over contracts for SROs. 

The three-three vote means contracts with the Jeffersontown and Shively police departments, and the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office were not approved. 

The vote comes after Metro Council approved a budget that removes 17 LMPD officers from schools to put them back on the streets.
