“Sentinel” bill passes committee

A bill that would allow the arming of school employees or volunteers on school grounds passed the House Education committee by an 8-7 vote this morning.

 

House Bill 1087 was amended to include requirement that school boards receive approval from the county sheriff with jurisdiction over the district before implementing the “sentinel” program, non-law enforcement individuals acting as school “sentinels” receive training from law enforcement and discussion among the board on the program be done in executive session.
