"Armed-janitor plan draws mixed reaction from Montpelier parents"

[link to www.toledoblade.com]


...Montpelier schools may be the first in Ohio to ramp up security by authorizing employees to carry weapons.

The district has about 1,000 students in kindergarten through 12th grade and 75 teachers in one building in this Williams County village of 4,000.

The school board voted unanimously on Wednesday to allow four janitors to carry their own guns inside the school.

Mrs. Hickman, who learned about the plan in a letter the district sent to parents, said that the school district is taking a protective stance that could deter shooters from entering school property and could serve as a model for other districts.

School officials said they began floating the idea of arming some nonteaching staff about six months ago in response to periodic national incidents of classroom violence. The Dec. 14 massacre of 20 students and six staff at Sandy Hook Elementary School provided the impetus for the school board enact the plan.

Four janitors, all men, have volunteered to take part and are to undergo a two-day training course in March that will be paid for by the school district.

Superintendent Jamie Grime would not identify the employees who have agreed to participate.

Mark Earle, father of two Montpelier students, said that arming janitors to deter violence could become a standard practice for schools in Ohio and throughout the country.

I think some school districts have already implemented armed guards in schools to stop the possibilty of incidents as far as violence with people entering the schools, Mr. Earle said while he waited in his vehicle for his daughter and son to emerge.".........
