Lee worked with an existing program called Eddie Eagle, which was developed by the National Rifle Association. The program has been taught for several years by the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office. Lee was able to arrange for two sheriff’s officers to come to Academy Charter School and teach the gun safety program for about 300 kindergarten through fourth grade students.

Parents of students at the school were asked if they wanted their child to participate in the program. A handful of parents chose to not have their children participate.

The program does not take a position on gun ownership. It simply teaches children what they should do if they come in contact with a gun.
