I think they can authorize anybody that they want to carry without having to authorize all CHLs. §46.03 says that carry on school premises is illegal "unless pursuant to written regulations or written authorization of the institution;" I don't see why they couldn't write a regulation saying that only school board members and administrators can carry.

I suspect strongly (but have no direct knowledge) there are already a few higher-up college administrators who are authorized to carry but those cases wouldn't be publicized.
