School resolution for concealed carry

Local News

BEMENT, Ill. (WCIA) — The Bement School District voted in favor of sending a resolution to the Illinois Association of School Boards asking for its support in pushing legislation allowing individual school districts to decide whether or not to allow campuses to have a trained administrator, faculty or other staff armed at schools.

The resolution states the staff member would be trained, pass background checks, and be qualified to carry a gun. Superintendent Sheila Greenwood says it does not mean teachers will be armed on campuses for the upcoming school year, but she would like for school districts to be able to decide whether or not this is a good option for their campuses.
