“If I was on a board (of education) I would look at that option,” Dewine told the News. “That person would have to be experienced, a police officer, someone with extensive training.”

Dewine would not expect the appointed personnel to carry the weapon but could see that it would be placed in a safe, where only that person would have access to it.

While school districts grapple with security issues, Dewine is planning seminars for educators and administrators that will provide information regarding school safety.
