IPS looks to make changes to policy allowing guns on school grounds

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Indianapolis Public Schools is preparing for a change in its policy about guns on school grounds.

At the Tuesday night meeting of the IPS Board, Superintendent Lewis Ferebee said “this is in alignment with recent changes in state law.”

Back in March, Governor Pence signed a bill that says guns on campus must be locked in a vehicle, out of sight.

The new law says though, students are not allowed to leave guns in their cars, unless they are members of a shooting club and have permission.

Dr. Ferebee said that part of the state law does not apply to Indianapolis Public Schools, right now, because “we don’t have those teams at this time.”

The board will vote on the policy adjustment, next week.
