On Jan. 1st Assembly Bill 424 will go into effect, which will negate a policy implemented last year that gave school administrators the authority to decide whether people could carry concealed weapons on school campuses. 

In November of 2016, the Kern High School District voted to implement this policy and allow people to carry concealed weapons on school grounds.

However, with Assembly Bill 424 going into effect in the new year, a spokesperson with KHSD told 23ABC they will no longer allow this. 

The KHSD has notified (by mail) the 26 people approved to carry a concealed weapon on KHSD campuses, about AB 424 and that they will no longer be able to carry a concealed weapon on our campuses.
