HB 1788 provides that school districts, open enrollment charter schools, and private schools are immune from liability for any damages that result from the “reasonable action” taken by “security personnel to maintain the safety of the school campus, including action relating to possession or use of a firearm. “Security personnel” includes a school district peace officer, marshal, SRO, retired peace officer and volunteers. The same immunity extends for the “reasonable actions” of employees who have written permission from the board or governing body to carry a firearm on campus. The immunity also extends to the individual “security personnel.”
DAWG BONE: OK. BUT LET’S HOPE WE DON’T HAVE CAUSE TO RELY ON THIS IMMUNITY.
