Randy Town doesn’t think the Toppenish School District will be the last district to arm its administrators to prevent school tragedies.

As the safety and security coordinator for Educational Service District 105, Town says, “Now that Toppenish has taken this action, it’s just a matter of time before other districts consider the same policy.”

Town believes rural school districts rneed to consider arming administrators. He helped form the policy in Toppenish. In that district, 11 administrators — including the superintendent — have volunteered to be armed when classes start again in the Fall.

The Yakima School District has armed police officers in its high schools and some elementary schools as well.
