Armed school administrators
TOPPENISH, WASHINGTON- School administrators in the fall will be armed in the Toppenish School District in Eastern Washington State adding another level of security.
Principals, vice principals and the superintendent have volunteered for a program to undergo gun training and get concealed carry permits.
This follows the school shooting at Sandy Hook, Connecticut in December of 2012.
The future gun-toting administrators have to pass background checks and get 16 hours of gun training before they can get the concealed carry permit.
The training includes shoot-don't shoot scenarios similar to ones police officers undergo.
