Students in West Feliciana Parish will be allowed to wear bulletproof backpacks this year after the school board's unanimous vote in favor last night.

State lawmakers approved a law earlier this year that requires school districts that allow the wearing of backpacks to permit bulletproof versions also.

However, the superintendent of schools says the bulletproof backpacks won't be allowed at activities or in areas of a school where backpacks are forbidden.
