CLARKSVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) - A school district that gained national attention last year for its security measures is back in the news.
The Clarksville School District said they are beefing up their school security even more after receiving a $65,000 grant from the National Rifle Association. They plan to create a buzz-in system, place panic buttons in offices, and coat windows with a bulletproof film.
If you'll recall, the school district first made headlines last year after allowing their school's security officers to carry guns.
