Personally I think all school personnel should be allowed to carry on campus if they wish.
Weekly/biweekly Michigan legislative action thread
Senate Bill 213: Allow concealed pistols in schools; revise CPL procedures Introduced by Sen. Michael Green (R) on February 20, 2013, to allow a teacher, administrator, or other school employee to licensed to carry a concealed pistol to do so in school if the schools chief executive officer or school board authorizes this. The bill would also remove taverns, child care centers and certain arenas from the concealed pistol permit laws gun free zone provision; eliminate county concealed weapon licensing boards, and transfer the responsibility for issuing concealed pistol licenses to the state police; and revise various other details of this law.

Great idea, but it won’t fly. The LEOSA specifies two classes of officers. Qualified Active and Qualified Retired. According to Federal law, only active, ON-DUTY officers can carry weapons on school grounds or within 1000 feet of a school.
Off-duty personnel or qualified retired are subject to the same restrictions as ccw permit holders.

I once knew a small town police chief in Michigan.
He told me he quit because he spent 10% of his time on
law enforcement and the other 90% dealing with union
grievances from his men.
One of the advantages of this type of program is that teachers/administrators in a small community school know & recognize all the students, which could help minimize mistaken identity casualties.
High school students can look imposing to a nervous cop, yet the armed principal knows the kid in the black hoodie is just Norman the nitwit junior. I attended such a high school & the principal knew the name of every kid in school, without doubt.
School staff will be far more likely to recognize a stranger, too.

Hey isn’t this area not far from the state prisons in Jackson, Mi. I know for certain there is a county jail in Kalamazoo.
Sounds like a plan for the schools.
i remember the day I had to ask a teenage punk waiting at the school bus to hand over the tree branch he was swinging at the other children waiting. the little turd refused to hand over the tree branch, so I just went right for the turd on my John deere. i had an interesting conversation with the high school principal and the superintendent of schools, they really liked I brought the tree branch i with me.
The turd got suspended for three days, kicked off the bus for the rest of school semester. (eventually the turd got expelled from the school) later on the same turd held up a bank. now he is in a federal facility. justice served. damn I wanted to pop that turd of a kid with a couple shots from the pellet gun.

...Victor Pierce has seen the bodies of murdered children, and hes struggled to reckon with it. After Sandy Hook, he felt compelled to do something, he says. So he decided to invite teachers and school administrators to participate in the reserve-officer-training program.
The 'batman' movie house killer drove past many theaters to find one that outlawed guns. The crazies don't like it when honest citizens can shoot back. No one's going to go after the children in this town... Hats off to a good man - Victor Pierce. He's protecting children...
