Schools’ response to student walkouts varied across state, nation

Kyley Schultz Wednesday, March 14, 2018 Schools’ response to student walkouts varied across state, nation WASHINGTON – High school students across the country walked out Wednesday to demand action on school safety, but how far they walked and what they faced when they walked back in varied by school district. In Arizona, there was no set policy on how schools were to manage the hundreds of students who participated in school demonstrations marking the one-month anniversary of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that killed 17 and wounded 14. The decision was left to individual school districts. But Heidi Vega, spokeswoman for the Arizona School Boards Association, said that while there was no single approach for handling the walkouts, many schools took the protests “very seriously” and worked with students who organized the events. “We are letting schools have the final decision, but we did send out an official statement to schools with tips on handling student activism and a resource list,” Vega said. “Schools have different approaches, but many are requiring them to have their demonstrations on campus at a specific time.” She saw that with her own children, whose schools required that students remain on school grounds. Vega cited an email from Mountain Ridge High School, which one of her children attends, that warned students who left campus could be subject to suspension and told...

President Donald Trump on Tuesday rescinded the program former President Barack Obama instituted in 2012 by executive order, asking Congress to come up with a legislative plan. The original program will be phased out by March 5, 2018, leaving confusing and contradictory legal questions over what will happen with DREAMers who have already filed for DACA or who plan to file before the program winds down. Phoenix attorney Alicia Heflin said that those who want DACA protection had to have their applications submitted and received before Tuesday’s ruling. The administration will not consider any new applications....
