Officials say a school district in Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania is weighing a proposal to arm teachers.

The Tamaqua area school district has been discussing the idea since the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut.

Leaders are waiting for the results of a study, and say a plan could be finished by this summer.

The district would need to wait for legislation from Harrisburg that would allow school staff to be armed before it could take any action.
