Follow Up Advisory Regarding TVUSD Campus' Student Demonstrations Held on March 14, 2018

Today, about 1,900 of our TVUSD students participated in peaceful demonstrations on campus in response to the nation-wide memorial of the 17 lost lives in Parkland, Florida.  Our students participated in moments of silence, speeches, gatherings, etc., for about 17 minutes and then peacefully returned to class, as instructed, to continue learning.  The high school campuses adjusted their schedules so that student-led, on-campus activities occurred at the end of the intervention period and into an extended break period.  No first class instruction was affected.  At the middle school level, based on discussions we had previously with our staff and students, we didn't anticipate participation.  However, we did have a plan in place and we were able to safely accommodate students who chose to participate in the student-led activities on campus.  At the elementary level, we had a handful of students in the upper grades who requested the opportunity to sit in silence in the quad area for the 17 minutes.    

 

We respect the right of our students to advocate for causes that are important to them and support their efforts to do so in an orderly, safe and supervised manner while at school.  While it remains important for students that they have a right to express themselves, it also is important that they do not create a disruption to the orderly operation of our schools.   Any student who made negative choices regarding behavior or attendance will be subject to consequences consistent with school policy and education code.   We thank our students for the way they conducted themselves today while allowing their civic voices to be heard.   

 

Original Advisory Posted Prior to March 14.

 

To all TVUSD Students and Families:
 

The recent tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida has sparked an unprecedented student movement across America.
 

On Wednesday, March 14th, at 10:00 a.m., demonstrations nationwide will occur to memorialize the 17 Parkland student and teacher victims, while showing solidarity against violence.   Nationwide organizers have stated that these are to be a respectful, 17-minute observance. 


Student leaders at our comprehensive high schools have expressed a desire to organize their own school observances on the 14th, which, by right, may be held on campus during school hours.  In the interest of safety and to keep the focus on teaching and learning, student gatherings may be allowed on school grounds, not off campus.  We are prepared to safely accommodate any student-led observances that may occur on campuses on the 14th. 


Comprehensive High Schools (CHS, GOHS, TVHS)   TVUSD’s three comprehensive high schools will be adjusting the school day schedule on March 14.  The schedules are site-based and will provide a non-instructional block of time at 10:00 a.m. (consistent with the nationwide walk-out).  The planned timeframe is 17 minutes.  Each site is adjusting schedules based on their campus logistics and needs, so the exact duration time may be adjusted.  This allows students to voluntarily participate in any on-campus, student-led and organized memorial events honoring the 17 lost lives in the Parkland, Florida school tragedy.  This alternate plan, in lieu of an official walk-out off campus, ensures that students remain on the campus where we can appropriately provide for their safety and protects instructional time.  Site administrators/student advisors have met with student leaders on each campus to serve as a compliance resource only for the student-led plans.  The same conduct and content guidelines that would be required for any other on-campus activity/event will apply. 


Sparkman Campus and Middle Schools
In consultation with the Sparkman campus and middle school principals, there will not be any change to schedules on March 14.  Based on current feedback, they don’t anticipate student participation that would require adjustments.  They are prepared to independently address and respond to student participation interests that may arise on March 14.     


Elementary Schools
In consultation with elementary principals, there will not be any change to schedules on March 14.  Based on current feedback, as well as age and understanding of the issues at the elementary level, they don’t anticipate student participation. They are prepared to independently address and respond to student participation interests that may arise on March 14. 

Guidelines Applicable to All TVUSD Campuses Normal policies regarding student attendance will apply.


All TVUSD schools are closed campuses.  


Students are not authorized to leave campus.  Leaving campus or participating in disorderly conduct that disrupts school operations is not acceptable and will be handled in accordance with Board Policy/AR’s and Ed Codes. 

All employees are expected to continue to perform their assigned duties during working hours.


Supervision of any student-led activities on campus will be provided by employees who are responsible for student supervision or safety and school administrators.
 

Please contact your school principal if you have any questions or concerns regarding this announcement and your child’s specific school site plans.
