Survey Shows Community Supports CKA
Written by Andrew-Rossi on March 8, 2018
The survey results are in, and the community has spoken on their opinion regarding Policy CKA.
According to information released by Park County School District 6 yesterday, an overwhelming majority of the community is in favor of allowing staff to carry concealed weapons in schools.
2400 surveys were sent out to a random selection of registered voters in the school district. According to information released by the school district, the statisticians that were consulted prior to the survey advised that at least 300 responses would be necessary to make the survey valid – and that number was exceeded threefold.
The report, which will be examined at tonight’s school board work session, shows that 741 of the 1018 people who returned the survey were in favor of adopting a policy that would allow for armed personnel in the schools.
The survey responses were sorted into five categories. 74 percent of those surveyed who identified themselves as community members at large were in favor of adopting the policy; 71 percent of parents; 68 percent of employees; and 63 percent who identified as “other” or who had multiple descriptions said they would support a policy that would allow staff to carry weapons.
The university researchers who were consulted about the survey confirmed that the survey results would be statistically 90% accurate.
