After a Close Call in January, La Vernia ISD Voted and Approved to Arm Qualified Staff
In light of the Uvalde tragedy, many school districts are looking to act to make changes. What some of you don't know is that there was a 'close call' in La Vernia earlier this year. According to La Vernia ISD, someone tried to enter their campus in January. At that point, the school district went into to action to ensure the safety of its students, faculty, and staff. In April, the La Vernia school board did approve what is called the guardian program.
The Texas Association of School Boards School Law eSource provides a description of the Guardian program, which is allowed under the federal Gun-Free School Zones Act and the Texas Penal Code.
According to social media, a lot of people have opinions on what the solutions is. But, this question is, when is the necessary change going to happen to prevent more tragedies like the one in Uvalde. I personally think that the guardian program does provide protection for our schools and students and it might be a movement in the right direction.
