Rockford School Board votes on concealed weapons issue - Mar 12th, 2013 - Local

Members of the Rockford Public School Board unanimously approved a new "weapons-free school zone" policy for the district last night. It would prohibit any unauthorized firearms on their campuses.
Under current Michigan law people are not allowed to carry concealed weapons onto school grounds. People who have a concealed pistol license in the state are allowed to carry firearms, but must do so openly.
The new Rockford policy does not allow any weapons on school property -- unless the person carrying the weapon is a police officer or other law enforcement officials, or a person authorized by the superintendent to bring it onto school grounds for educational or security purposes.
