Friday's walkout will be different from the one held March 14, in which about 500 Naperville Central students marched to the school's football field to remember the students and staff who died in the Parkland, Fla., in February. These trades of philosophies are structured around citizenship and responsible civic participation. Leon County Schools is supporting its students' right to protest.
"The recent tragic event at Stoneman Douglas High has stirred the sense of civil action in many of our students", a recorded message sent Wednesday to parents of DeLand High School students stated, adding that the school is "not endorsing any kind of political rally".
While participating, students at both schools were closely and carefully supervised. "Students leaving campus without permission is definitely a safety concern", Quattlebaum said.
"A civic resources guide has been available at www.marionschools.net for several weeks now, providing students resources and ideas for potential activities for this Friday".
Students from at least two Dayton high schools are organizing the rally at the Lincoln Park Civic Commons at Fraze Pavilion. Head organizers listed on the page are generally students. The National School Walkout will take place at 10 a.m. "Students will be required to follow proper procedures if they intend to walk off campus".
This latest domestic rally comes more than a month later a huge number of 1000s of US college students from more than 3,000 schools engaged within the #ENOUGH nationwide School walk out to demand which lawmakers seek smaller gun control laws.
"Because the law in most places requires students to go to school, schools can discipline you for missing class".
Students in the Kansas City area, like their peers across the country, expect to make another loud plea for broader gun control in the United States. The Student Government Association at Seabreeze High School in Daytona Beach came up with a slogan for the occasion: Be kind. She'll also encourage students to use the power of their vote and voice, she said.
It is possible that Polk County students will take part in such demonstrations.
Local students are preparing for a peaceful protest Thursday.
