CFP means Concealed Firearm Permit. In most states, it is what an individual must obtain before being able to carry a concealed firearm.
There are many different names such as a Concealed Handgun License (CHL), Concealed Pistol License (CPL), Concealed Weapon License (CWL), Concealed Weapon Permit (CCP) or Concealed Carry Weapon (CCW), but they all basically mean the same thing.

This means in a or on the grounds of any public or private elementary or secondary school (middle and high schools) as defined in 76-10-505.5.
