SANDPOINT, Idaho (AP) -- A recall drive has been approved against the Lake Pend Oreille School Board chairman who proposed arming teachers as a security measure.
WATCH: Plans to arm staff dropped in N. Idaho school district
The Bonner County reportedly clerk received enough signatures from recall supporters to start the recall process against Steve Youngdahl.
Youngdahl triggered a community debate last fall when he proposed placing guns in secure locations inside schools and training some teachers, administrators and other employees to use them in case of a school shooting.
The next step in the recall process is for a letter to be sent to Youngdahl, which will likely happen Tuesday. Upon receipt, Youngdahl has five days to resign.
If he declines, the school district must schedule a special election for March 11.
