The Bonner County Daily Bee reports that supporters have about 70 days to collect the necessary 105 signatures to cause a special election on whether to recall Steve Youngdahl.
Other trustees say they were surprised by Youngdahl's proposal earlier this month because there was no prior discussion.
Backers of the recall say Youngdahl presented faulty information in his initial policy proposal having to do with mass shootings stopped by police and those stopped by civilians.
Tom Bokowy is one of the recall leaders. He says arming teachers creates more problems and greater risk than not arming them.
Youngdahl contends the information he supplied is valid.
