New Jersey school board is one step closer to allowing its high school principal, a retired police officer, to start carrying a firearm on campus.
The Passaic Valley school board voted Tuesday night in favor of a policy to permit Raymond Rotella, who served 25 years with the Little Falls Police Department, to carry a gun on the job, The Record newspaper reports.
The vote, approved 8-0, is the first of two required to adopt the policy.
If the policy is approved, Mr. Rotella’s permission to carry a weapon will be specific to him, and will not be transferred to his successor, officials told the paper.
