Frisco ISD will soon ask parents to acknowledge that they are aware of Texas’ gun storage laws that require people to store firearms in ways that keep them out of children’s hands. The new initiative is part of a resolution that lays out some of the district’s gun safety awareness efforts, part of which will give parents the option to acknowledge that law.
The resolution was approved 4-2 on Monday, September 12, with one board member absent. The two dissenting school board members were Stephanie Elad and Marvin Lowe. The dissenting members were backed by the conservative political action committee Families 4 Frisco that promotes “unbiased, non-politicized learning” and aims to “protect the values of the family within the educational setting,” according to the group’s website.
