As required by law, the emergency operations plan shall include the District's procedures addressing:

  1. Reasonable security measures when District property is used as a polling place;

Purpose

Recognizing that District schools are located in a somewhat isolated area and that response from emergency first responders, including law enforcement personnel, may take an extended period of time, the Board adopts the following provisions to address concerns about effective and timely response to emergency situations at schools.

Authorization

Pursuant to its authority under state law, the Board may, from time to time, authorize specific individuals to possess certain firearms on school property, at school-sponsored or school-sanctioned events, and at Board meetings. Specifically authorized individuals shall be approved by separate action of the Board. The Board shall issue written authorization to approved individuals.

Handgun Licensees

Only those individuals who have obtained and maintain a current handgun license, in accordance with state law, are eligible to be authorized to possess a firearm on school property.

Training

Any individual authorized to possess a firearm on school property shall be provided additional training as the Board or designee determines necessary or appropriate.
