Alamo Colleges campus carry guidelines

The Alamo Colleges District shared how it plans to implement the new campus carry law that goes into effect next week.

The system says there will be some areas that licensed concealed carry will not be allowed. That includes board meetings, child care facilities, mental health counseling facilities in addition to locations where students or employees meet for disciplinary meetings, and several other sites.

“So now we are in the process of communicating and putting up the signs because without the signs you can’t enforce the rules for the prohibited areas,” explained Ross Laughead, General Counsel at Alamo Colleges.

The rules go into effect August 1st
