MOUNT PLEASANT, Texas (KLTV) – The Mount Pleasant ISD board has approved a plan to allow some employees to wear concealed handguns.
A spokeswoman for the school said the board approved using the Guardian Plan, which is a state-approved plan which solely provides hand-picked armed employees the ability to defend themselves in the event of an active shooter.
Some schools opt for the Marshal Plan, which gives employees armed law enforcement capabilities.
The plan will go into effect for the 2020-2021 year.
