The bill expanding what’s known as the guardian program, SB 7030, passed the State House last week and was signed into law by Gov. Ron DeSantis on Wednesday. 

The law will now put the decision of arming educators in the hands of district school boards, not county sheriffs. 

On Tuesday night, School Board Member Terry Castillo brought the subject up for discussion. 

“This is imperative,” she said. “And I think we need to give it the attention it deserves.”
