Idaho County’s Mountain View School District will allow staff to carry firearms on campus.
Trustees approved the policy Monday night, on a 4-1 vote, the Lewiston Tribune reported.
Under the new policy, staff members will be allowed to carry a concealed firearm and act as security officers — provided they choose to take training and receive permission from the school board.
The next step will be to seriously vet would-be volunteers, district Superintendent Kent Stokes told the Tribune. After months of editing, Stokes says the new policy is solid.
