There’s no state law in Ohio that requires a school board to go public with its plans to arm school faculty.
School boards must give certain employees approval before they carry guns, according to wcpo.com. Those employees must have a valid concealed carry weapons permit. Otherwise, weapons are generally banned from school grounds.
While people have been talking about arming school employees for decades, the school safety measure is new frontier nationwide. There is little mention of armed teachers in the Ohio Revised Code, and several legislative proposals that sought to regulate or clarify the law have not passed.
