Texas School district to debut new bulletproof equipment for staff – VIDEO

AUSTIN (KXAN) — After the deadly high school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas over the summer, administrators at Edna Independent School District have carefully reviewed their own campus security plans.

“It’s our commitment to school safety, no different than we would approach academics,” assistant superintendent Madelyn Maresh said Wednesday.

Together, with the guidance of local law enforcement partners, the district decided to implement a guardian program, which authorizes specific, generally unidentified, employees to carry on campus at all times.

The district announced Wednesday it had purchased a dozen ballistic vests from a Philadelphia-based company called Unequal.
