DALLAS -- A North Texas school district on Wednesday unanimously passed the final hurdle to allow guns in school.

The Argyle ISD school board had to re-vote on the policy that was initially approved last week to clarify some of the wording.

The decision means teachers, principals, and other staff members can be armed on campus.

The district's "not on my watch" plan is only for workers who meet a strict set of guidelines — including specialized training and mental evaluations.

Students will not know which employees are armed.
