Statement from Superintendent North:

A number of our students in the Douglas County School System have expressed a desire to participate in a nationwide 17-minute walkout Wednesday, March 14.  

My position remains unchanged. Wednesday, the Douglas County School System will acknowledge our students’ right to protest in a civil and orderly manner. If our students walk out for a reasonable amount of time and return in an orderly fashion, there will be no consequences.  

The safety of our students and staff will always be our first priority. As a district, we endeavor to use the best resources available to make decisions to protect our students and our employees. Wednesday’s walkouts will be well supervised and will occur in an orderly manner. We make these important decisions while striving to maintain a nurturing and supportive learning environment for each student. Your ongoing support is valued and appreciated in this effort.
