Cost plays a role as Pasco votes to put armed security guards in elementary schools

LAND O’LAKES — Armed guards soon will be stationed at Pasco County’s 47 elementary schools. And school district officials expect to tap into the state’s new "guardian" program to pay for the training.

The program allows some school employees, but typically not teachers, to carry guns on school grounds. District officials say they hope the Pasco guards will fall into that category under new state rules, even though their only role will be to provide security.
