N. Pike mulls armed guards

Posted: Friday, February 8, 2013 2:00 pm | Updated: 10:50 am, Thu Oct 24, 2013.

North Pike School District Superintendent Dr. Ben Cox made it known Thursday he would like to see armed resource officers on campus next school year if funding is available.

“I would want them to be armed,” he said. “We don’t want to have prisons, but we want to make certain our students are safe. We have our principals evaluate our campuses and see where their safety needs lie. We systematically examine those needs and remedy them.”
