A North Texas school district approved a safety measure that will allow teachers to carry a concealed handgun in their classrooms.
On Monday, the board of trustees for the Weatherford Independent School District voted unanimously to arm select faculty and staff members, part of a larger “Defender Program.”
The district says the program has an “extensive training component” and an “annual training requirement.” Those individuals selected to carry a concealed firearm on campus will remain anonymous.
All school staff will receive trauma and intruder training.
Breitbart Texas has reported that schools also permit trained and approved personnel to carry a concealed firearm through other similar programs.
