Believing that to be inadequate, administrators recently purchased firearms and trained six employees to use them should there be an active shooter situation at district schools. 

"I hope we never have to use them," Alan Ward, a school board member who has been discussing this option with the school for two years, told the Associated Press. "But in the event something did happen, we wanted to be prepared."
