SAN ANTONIO - An area school district is considering allowing teachers to carry concealed handguns.
On Monday, Hunt ISD Superintendent Dr. Crystal Dockery said the district is exploring all options. Dockery said fencing around the school campus, as well as video cameras and scan cards will also be discussed by board members at Thursday’s school board meeting.
Sallie West, a Hunt ISD kindergarten teacher, supports guns in schools.
“I wouldn't personally carry a handgun, though I support the school board’s decision to recommend or mandate it,” said West. “There are staff members that I would entrust and feel very safe having them carry concealed handguns.”
School attorneys are also looking at all options and News 4 WOAI is told it could take months before the school board decides what it plans to do.
