ATLANTA (AP) — Another Georgia school system will allow armed teachers who volunteer to carry weapons.

The Details:

  • Fannin County Schools will allow teachers to bring guns to school under certain conditions  
  • The school Board will require an annual background check
  • Guns must be secured with no student access

WSB-TV reports that the Fannin County School Board near the Tennessee line on Thursday unanimously approved the policy.

The station reports that teachers can have guns holstered under the plan. Guns in bags or purses will not allowed.

The proposal says that employees must be approved by the Board of Education and the Fannin County Sheriff before they’re allowed to carry weapons on school grounds.

Last month, the Laurens County school board in central Georgia approved a policy allowing select staff to carry guns on school property, in vehicles and at school functions.
