BURIEN, Wash. (AP) - Highline School District Superintendent Sue Enfield says guns are not the answer to possible threats of violence in schools in the Burien area.
She has proposed making the district a "gun free zone." The district's 20 armed guards would be disarmed.
KOMO-TV reports (http://is.gd/GSt4cb ) the teachers' union says it will oppose the idea.
The school board it expected to consider weapons ban at Wednesday's meeting, but likely won't take a vote.
The Highline District has more than 18,000 students in schools at Burien, Des Moines and SeaTac.
