JCPS addresses school walkout planned in support of Florida shooting

Plainfield Students Plan Walkout

Newsom wrote the proposed walkouts, which come after last month's mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Fla., do not create a "a substantial disruption, nor infringe on the rights of other students" if conducted peacefully and lawfully.

Extra police will be on hand Wednesday for Indian Prairie School District 204 students who take part of the National School Walkout, officials said.

A gun was confiscated from a student at a Randolph County high school Thursday morning, according to Tim Moody with the Randolph County School System.

"I could possibly be kicked out of student council and lose my graduation speech", said Boydston.

Students faced the Mercer County School Board with a message, they say strikes at the core of their education. Law enforcement also has been working with the school's administration on this situation. "We're going to make something happen".

Chanting "gun control now", the students organized the march in the wake of the February shooting that killed 17 people at a Florida high school. "I think it's a great way to show that and have our voices be heard".

DeShone Kizer to Packers as Part of Damarious Randall Trade with Browns
Giving up Kizer makes sense considering that Cleveland acquired Pro Bowl quarterback Tyrod Taylor from Buffalo earlier in the day. It also meant there was just no way the Browns planned on allowing Kizer to be a starter for the team again.

Bouck said no visitors will be allowed on school grounds during the walkout, including parents or members of the public wishing to participate.

Greenville County Schools is taking the position that whatever happens March 14 at campuses around the county will be "student determined and student led" within parameters the district sets.

All 16 Cobb high school principals were meeting with district staff today in a regular, previously scheduled meeting on a number of topics.

For students choosing not to participate, "their choice will be respected and we will provide appropriate adult supervision", stated the email.

Wade arrived during lunchtime and went straight to the cafeteria, where Novell said the 12-time NBA All-Star posed for photos and talked with students.

Students who walk out will be docked with an unexcused absence, their grade in the class they miss will be lowered for this quarter and they'll be banned from evening practices or events. "After the shooting, we were all left in shock". "We are looking at this as an opportunity for our students to participate in the democratic process of peaceful protest".
