Teachers at one Arkansas high school will be allowed to carry concealed handguns this fall.

Clarksville High School will become the first school in the state to allow teachers to carry concealed handguns under the laws that allow security guards to be armed in schools.

Twenty teachers, volunteers and staff will undergo 53 hours of training from a private security company that will then make them licensed guards.  Once they complete their training, they will each be given $1,100 to purchase a 9mm Walther PPS and a holster.

The school is paying $50,000 for the training.
