Mitchell Christian To Consider Arming Staff

MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) — Mitchell Christian School is considering taking advantage of a new South Dakota law that allows schools to arm teachers, other staff or volunteers with guns to improve school security.

Mitchell Christian Superintendent Joseph Fox says he and some members of the school board support the idea of having guns in the school to protect students from intruders.

The Legislature this year passed a law allowing schools to arm teachers and volunteers. Local law enforcement officers would have to approve a school’s plan, and the sentinels would have complete 80 hours of training in a state program.
