Texas school district to allow some teachers to carry guns

Posted:

Knowledge, books and skills won't be the only items teachers will be packing in at least one Texas school district next school year.

Several educators will be armed as part of the district's Defender Program.

Bohman Independent School District is gearing up to let a select group of trained and vetted teachers, coaches and administrators carry guns in school.

More than 80 staff members have applied for the district's defender program.

It's expected to be up and running by August 1.

The start up cost is about $60,000 with annual maintenance fees at about $15,000.
