Some staff members in the West Carrollton City (Ohio) district will have access to firearms on campus under a security plan approved by the school board.

A District Response Team will be formed, and some trained staff members will have access to firearms kept in locked safes inside school buildings, the district says in a news release.

Those volunteering to be a part of the response team will go through an extensive training and interview process. 

Examples of training will include, but are not limited to, mitigation techniques, neutralization of potential threats and active shooters and psychology of critical incidents. 

Only trained staff members who are part of the response team and law enforcement officials will be able to access the firearm safes and know their location. All firearms will be locked in safes during the school day.

The West Carrollton district has about 3,700 students and is about 8 miles south of Dayton.
