Madison local schools allows arming staff

BUTLER COUNTY — The Madison Local School District board voted unanimously Tuesday night to allow district teachers and staff to carry weapons to be "prepared and equipped to defend and to protect students," according to an ordinance that passed.

According to the ordinance, any staff members who want to carry a deadly weapon must be approved and receive written authorization from the superintendent, Cincinnati and reported.

Those people must "be permitted under Ohio law to carry a concealed handgun and must undergo response to active shooter training and re-certify each year prior to being authorized to convey and/or possess deadly weapons or dangerous ordnance in a school safety zone of the Madison Local School District," according to language in the ordinance.
Training and certification could take months, so whether anyone would be armed before next school year is not clear.

With Richard K. Jones as the sheriff in Butler County, the training might not take as long as some think. :)
