    Some Van ISD employees will be allowed to bring concealed handguns inside schools.

    Some North Texas school employees will be allowed to bring guns on campus.

    Leaders in the Van Independent School District in Texas passed a plan this week to allow some employees to carry concealed handguns inside schools.

    Those employees must have a concealed handgun license and go through ongoing intensive training.

    School board leaders won't reveal how many employees will have guns, citing a need to keep those details from any possible intruders.

    Information from the district did not detail when the plan would begin.
