It may be quiet in the Winston Dillard School District when it comes to participation in school walk-outs, which are expected to take place around the nation.
While some groups are advocating the walk-outs in honor of the students who died in the recent Florida school shooting, and to advocate for stricter gun laws, Superintendent Kevin Miller told News Radio 1240 KQEN the district has not had any requests from students that want to observe the walk-out. Miller says the district handbook language for the high school indicates that students can coordinate meetings if they notify the principal’s office in advance and do not disturb class time.
Superintendents in the Sutherlin and South Umpqua School District did not respond to a request for information on the potential for walk-outs in their district, from News Radio 1240 KQEN.
