COLDSPRING — The Coldspring-Oakhurst CISD Board approved a resolution regarding safety and security personnel at its Nov. 27 meeting.
Superintendent Dr. Bryan Taulton said that because of a policy change, the district must have an armed security guard at each of its campuses and must submit a resolution to the state signifying that.
Taulton said the district does meet the requirement, and there are four campuses all with armed guards.
