BRENHAM - The Brenham ISD school board voted against a proposal that would have allowed teachers with concealed handgun licenses to have guns in the classroom.
The proposal was called the Brenham Angel Guardian Program. It was rejected in a 5-2 vote Monday, according to Superintendent Sam Bell.
Instead, the school board opted to keep guns in the hands of trained professionals.
District officials say they are now moving forward with plans to hire off-duty police officers to work at the schools. $75,000 will be allocated for the additional security.
