Mad River Schools in Riverside will allow some teachers and staff members access to weapons during active shooter situations.

The district plans to create what it calls “armed response teams” in every school. Each team will be made up of staff members who hold concealed carry permits and are trained to respond in emergencies. Members will have access to guns hidden in safes within the school.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Some Ohio school districts who saw tax levy defeats yesterday at the polls will look at trying again in November.

Superintendent Lori Handler of the Mount Healthy schools tells The Cincinnati Enquirer her suburban Cincinnati district has no choice but to put the back on the ballot.  She says the schools have had to slash programs that benefit students.
