Local students plan Wednesday walk-outs in response to gun violence

Posted: Updated:

TUSD’s superintendent says students have expressed their desire to walk out Wednesday and share their views on gun violence. But the district is doing whatever they can to keep them on campus.

Schools across the district are hosting on-campus events where students can share their views on gun violence.

The goal is to give those students an opportunity to express themselves without leaving campus.

But officials say at least dozens of students are planning to leave school. They have contacted the parents of those students in an attempt to dissuade them.

The superintendent says their number one goal is to keep students safe.

Officials say if the students do leave campus, they will be given an unexcused absence. And will have to make up any work missed.
