Officials discuss scope of weapons policy in Salem schools
The major changes in the policy include the title change from “Weapons in the Schools” to “Weapons on School Property” and the establishment of a mandatory one-year expulsion for any student who brings a gun to school, according to Superintendent Michael Delahanty.
School board member Michael Carney noted that there are fundraisers and other events held at locations where, under state law, people are allowed to carry firearms provided they are properly licensed.
“We have to be careful what we do with this,” said Morgan. “I would assume that state law would trump school district policy. If it is a school-sponsored activity, we don’t want you to bring weapons. I’m not sure how we can resolve that.”
“I would argue that if a student goes to a (restaurant) for a school-sponsored fundraiser, our expectation is that the student is not expected to have a weapon, period, end of story,” said Campbell.
