DOE to provide guidance to schools ahead of walkout

Despite Parkland, States Plow Ahead With New Pro-Gun Bills

The demonstration will have been one month since the shooting. District administration will be outside to supervise the students, according to Sutton.

After the walkout, the students are planning a "Conversation on Student Activism" in the library.

A crowd of one hundred plus filled the Jonathan Dayton High School's Media Center (IMC) Monday night for the Board of Education meeting.

Students approached Nelson County High School Principal Janell Stinnett about participating in a walkout, and Stinnett, along with Comer, supported the idea, Comer said. "It is our responsibility during these times to keep students safe and be thoughtful and objective listeners".

"By reaching out to others in the community through invitation, our students are also demonstrating their leadership skills and an understanding of what it means to be responsible, respectful and engaged citizens in a democracy", Hall said".

Student council members also said they've been working with district administrators to hire a new hall monitor, beef up door and entrance security, add more counselors and mental health staff and raise the profile of the school's police officer, among other measures. For as long as I can remember, especially in high school, people have made school shooter jokes, which is kind of inappropriate, but that's just the culture in which we live.

Safety is another issue many administrators have repeated.

There is clearly a lot to learn from the students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and their peers nationwide. "So if this is going to happen, which it looks like it will, we will facilitate a safe spot for them". "We would find them a specific place to meet".

Massie said rules still apply, but they are not going to put limitations on participation.

Some schools have organized events, which will give students an outlet.

In response, Columbia County middle and high schools will hold rallies indoors regarding gun control and school safety.

The names of the students killed in Florida will be read with one student leaving the gym after each name. It was unclear why the gun was at school, and multiple students were disciplined. Sodaro said he prefers students attend the walk-in, for safety reasons.

In February, Unified Superintendent Sue Savaglio-Jarvis acknowledged the possibility of student walkouts next week.

She also said the logistics of the protest are also up in the air after she and other organizers met last week with Walton Principal Judy McNeill, who told them she was disappointed that they wanted to walk out.

Bui said students who aren't able to participate in the walkout are being encouraged to contact their legislators, including U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., who represents the First Congressional District of which Kenosha is a part.

Beginning at 9:55 a.m., if students have written permission, they may leave study hall or the commons area.

"We ask that this be a quiet, reflective time out of respect for the 17 lives that were lost", Gauen's letter said. Students who don't want to participate can remain in their classrooms, he said. Contrary to your email, our staff will not be participating in the walkout.
