It’s called ‘The Guardian Plan,' and will allow trained employees of the Westwood Independent School District in Palestine to carry concealed handguns on school property.

The measure was approved during a school board meeting Monday night and makes Westwood ISD the sixth school district in East Texas to adopt a similar plan.

WISD Superintendent Ed Lyman said signs will be posted on campus notifying the public that there are people authorized to carry concealed handguns on school property.
