Ypsilanti School Board Adopts Anti-Gun Resolution

Nov 4, 2013

The Ypsilanti Community Schools Board of Education has adopted a resolution asking the state legislature to change the laws on the open carrying of firearms to specifically prohibit the practice on school property. 

Board President David Bates says students need a safe environment to thrive, and staff need safe schools to properly do their jobs.

The resolution adopted Monday night is similar to one adopted last month by the Rockford, Michigan school board.  

Also Monday night, the Ypsilanti Community Schools board approved a six-month contract with Margolis Companies for snow removal services.
