District hears plan to arm teachers (FROM NEWS SUN)
Two separate plans to protect local students are being debated in Clark County, highlighting the decisions districts face in the wake of shootings like Sandy Hook Elementary and Columbine High School.
Last week, Clark County commissioners approved a plan to hire two deputies whose primary job would be to work closely with local schools, reviewing school safety plans and getting to know staff members and teachers.
At the same time, Greenon School board members are considering several options for enhancing student safety, including a proposal that would arm staff members and teachers.
Chief Deputy Carl Loney of the Clark County Sheriff’s Office says the county program will cost about $96,000 in its first year and $118,000 the next to hire deputies to help boost school security. The plan is a proactive approach to help enhance school safety.
