Trustee says more input needed

Before Oconee trustees vote to allow individuals, other than resource officers, to carry guns in school, there needs to be a lot more public feedback, in the view of at least one board member. It has been a week since the unveiling of an idea to arm certain school employees, as a way to deter someone from carrying out a shooting at school. Says Denise McCormick, the District Four trustee, said, “It’s too big of a decision to go into lightly, so we have a lot more to look at.” In his report tonight to the trustees Dr. Michael Thorsland, district superintendent, will update the Armed School Alliance Program proposal that he, along with Sheriff Mike Crenshaw, presented last week.
