Ten Sleep Delays CKA Decision
Written by Andrew-Rossi on October 11, 2018
Another school district has delayed moving forward with their proposed policy on armed personnel.
After a district court judge ruled proper procedure was not followed by Uinta County School District No. 1 in adopting a policy that would allow approved staff to carry concealed firearms, the Ten Sleep School board has delayed any action on their policy.
The Ten Sleep School board had their firearms policy polished and ready for its first reading at their August meeting, but the Uinta County lawsuit and two absent board members prompted a delay.
The Evanston school district that had adopted a policy to allow staff to carry firearms was successfully sued by community members for not following the Wyoming Administrative Procedures Act.
To protect themselves from a similar situation, the Ten Sleep School Board issued a statement announcing it was considering adopting new firearms policy for the district and that a public hearing on the issue will be held on November 12. A 45-day public comment period will follow.
Cody’s school district passed its policy CKA in April, which is being implemented this school year.
