Toppenish School District In the Spotlight Again

KNDO

The Toppenish School District has gained national attention after announcing that it is arming administrators to protect kids when classes start again the fall.

John Cerna, Toppenish School District superintendent, says when he first presented the idea to the school board, they did not hesitate and told him, “If you can get it done, get it done.”

Cerna says ever since the policy was announced earlier this week his phone has been ringing off the hook. The story has been picked up by The Associated Press and run by Fox News, the Washington Times and others.

Eleven Toppenish School District administrators have volunteered to carry firearms when school starts in the fall, according to Cerna.

Volunteers had to pass background checks, get concealed weapons permits and go through training similar to that of law enforcement officers.
