(Park City-AP) -- The Park City School District is speaking up against guns in the classroom.

Board members are proposing a resolution that asks the state to keep their schools gun-free. The Salt Lake City School District was the first to adopt a similar resolution.

The schools disagree with a state law allowing concealed-weapons permit holders to bring guns into classrooms.

Earlier this year, a judge upheld a 25-year old University of Utah policy banning guns on campus, but the Utah Attorney General's Office has since filed an appeal saying only the state has the authority to ban guns.

Park City education board members will vote on the resolution November 18.
