The Oregon-Davis School Board members approved the first reading of a firearms policy during their meeting this week.
Superintendent Greg Briles said the school’s policy will reflect the state’s policy. As per state law, firearms may be in a school employee’s locked car out of the sight of the public.
Briles said the school board will be following the NEOLA policy.
“It’s a very generic one,” said Briles. “It’s a basic understanding of what it would be in the school. As of right now, the only person or persons who would be allowed to have firearms in the buildings would be our school resource officers or police officers.”
The final approval of the policy will be discussed at the next school board’s meeting on Monday, Aug. 18.
