  •  what about schools with multiple entry points (9+ / 0-)

    As I mentioned, the school I taught in had at least 14 doors from the outside in.  Do you have an armed guard at each of those?   What are the logistics?  As a teacher, would we be apprised of each of these guards names, etc.  There was an instance at this same school when I saw a man walking out of the math wing that I did not recognize.  He did not have on a visitor badge so I asked if I could help him.

    He told me he did not need my help and I could go on about my way.  By the way, he was armed but was not showing any kind of official indentification.  I followed him up to the front of school where I got the attention of one of the assistant principals and expressed my concern about his refusal to explain in any way why he was on the campus.  I was not totally satisfied by the answer given but did signal to the administration that armed outsiders were not to just be allowed to come on campus without some sort of identification.
