Needville ISD threatens to suspend protesting students who disrupt class

Students who stage walkout risk 3-day suspension in Texas school district

"Should students choose to do so, they will be suspended from school for 3 days and face all the consequences that go along with a school suspension".

The Waukesha County School District in Wisconsin also said Wednesday that students were prohibited from participating in walkouts, though the superintendent did not specify what the punishment would be. "Needville administrators can't censor political speech they might find distasteful, nor can they punish students more harshly for missing school to take part in a political protest than they would for any other unexcused absence". "All will be suspended for 3 days and parent notes will not alleviate the discipline".

Needville High School junior Maddy Lambright said she and a few friends had planned to organize a 17-minutes walkout to honor the 17 victims of the mass shooting.

Spring Independent School District, north of Houston, Texas, said in a statement that any student who walks out "could face an in-school suspension per our normal policies". "Anytime an individual deliberately chooses to harm others, we are sensitive and compassionate to those impacted".

Houston-area police are on edge amid arrests of several students who threatened campus violence in the social media-fueled fallout from last week's Florida shootings, and one superintendent said his students will be punished for walking out of class to protest gun laws.

Ratajkowski and Bear-McClard were first linked a few weeks ago, amid reports that she had ended her relationship with Jeff Magid . Sebastian is an actor and producer and recently worked with Robert Pattison on Good Time .

Anti-gun violence groups like Student Walkout Against Gun Violence and National School Walkout, have urged students to take place in coordinated walkouts across the nation, including one that's planned for April 20 - the 19th anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting in Colorado.

Rhodes added that "school is a place to learn and grow educationally, emotionally, and morally", thus he will not tolerate "a disruption".

"Students need to be involved in this discussion, and what comes out of those conversations may be different at each school".

He said Needville ISD will "not allow a student demonstration during school hours for any type of protest or awareness!"

Each of the aforementioned walkouts was announced in the wake of the recent Valentine's Day massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida which left 17 dead and 14 injured.
