SANDPOINT, Idaho -- A recall drive has been approved against the Lake Pend Oreille School Board chairman who proposed arming teachers as a security measure.
The Bonner County Daily Bee reports that the Bonner County 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.
