Niagara Falls High School organizes student protest walkout

March 14 for the one-month anniversary of the mass shooting, and 17 minutes is for the 17 people killed in this horrific tragedy. He's litigated numerous cases involving the intersection of civil liberties and national security.

Young people have been speaking out, including those who attend the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that was targeted on Valentine's Day, for more effective gun safety laws to prevent another 17 lives from being lost.

A permission slip is necessary for SEM students to participate. Remember, students have a First Amendment right to protest, just like anybody else. We want to very much encourage and empower student voices.

Students who participate peacefully in a walkout demonstration receive an unexcused absence for the class period or periods they miss. They can also take some punitive measures.

"I think we all realize that for folks who are teenagers right now, this could well be a defining moment in their lives".

Generally, students don't have to worry about being arrested - unless, of course, they start breaking laws, like blocking a street while protesting.

In Twin Falls, "we have not heard a lot of desire from our student population about participating" in a walkout, Craner wrote in a statement.

Adams said the Parkland shooting holds special meaning for schools in the Jefferson County School District, which is home to Columbine.

Yes. If the test was already scheduled and is part of the curriculum, that's perfectly fine. But if the test's sole objective is to keep students from walking out, that's more of problem.

"I really credit them with this", said Delta High School Principal Chris Conley. But there's no guarantee other schools won't take a different tact.

No matter how schools decide to deal with the demonstrations, students have been reassured by Harvard, Yale, MIT, the University of Connecticut, UCLA and dozens of other colleges and universities that their participation won't affect their chances of getting admitted.

Like Bellefonte, the Penns Valley Area School District also plans to provide a designated location within the school for students who wish to gather and text, email or call their local legislators. Of course, the motivations may be different. She does plan to join the Wednesday walkout, even it means getting suspended. But schools most certainly hope they do because of safety concerns. The possibility of individuals from outside the school community being drawn to the campuses poses risks we simply can not ignore.

Students may want to check school policies before making such a move, Ben Wizner with the ACLU told CNN. When student-led walkout demonstrations occur, they are not approved or school-sponsored events.

Plenty of students who otherwise wouldn't be involved in protesting are taking an interest in the issue of gun violence, Gordon said.

"We have the luck of the fact that we're staying on campus", Malone said.

Meaning, if they're undocumented, they could possibly draw attention from federal immigration agents from the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement. "That said, it has to be done in ways that are safe and appropriate", said spokesman Bob Mosier. "Schools should be proactive ensuring that students know. that if you don't want to participate that you're not required to do so", Hamiel said.

Now this is a little tricky. They'll be allowed to enter once they explain the objective of their visit.

"We just want to make sure the walkouts will be done in an orderly, calm manner that doesn't cause problems", said Jefferson County School District spokeswoman Diana Wilson.

Students at Wood River High School in Hailey are planning a walkout.

An event description on ActionNetwork.org created by Sarah Gordon for the Littleton High School walkout stated that students and staff have the right to teach and learn in safe environments. "So some teachers will accompany students" during the walkout for safety.
