An estimated 30 Ohio school districts, including Sidney City Schools, include in their security plans guns that are locked in safes, ready to be used by trained staff in case an active shooter enters school grounds.
Sidney City Schools superintendent John Scheu firmly believes the move to improve security with more weapons, while controversial, is necessary in the wake of recent school shooting not unlike the one Monday at Madison Local Schools and the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook.
- Sidney educators keep guns in lock boxes
- Only trained staff can open box with fingerprint
- 30 districts in Ohio have similar plan
