About 200 students at John Marshall Mid-High School stage walkout

About 200 students at John Marshall Mid-High School stage walkout”

Other provisions would create new mental health programs for schools; establish an anonymous tip line where students and others could report threats to schools, ban bump stocks and improve communication between schools, law enforcement and state agencies. He said students can participate without fear of penalty.

The video was filmed with her classmates to promote March For Our Lives, a March 24 protest calling for an end to mass shootings in the US.

In response to the national movement, the Vigo County School Corp. has "a very detailed plan in place", which was developed after consulting with student leaders and others, according to Superintendent Danny Tanoos.

At North Central Parke Community School Corp., "The subject has not come up at our schools so we now do not anticipate any issue with it".

Elizabeth Porter, a senior and another student helping organize the event, said that once the school learned of the keen student interest, the administration set out rules. The goal of the organized walkout is to "demand Congress pass legislation to keep us safe from gun violence at our schools, on our streets and in our homes and places of worship".

"This incident is a reminder that bad decisions carry serious consequences, and I encourage all parents to talk with their children to remind them of the importance of making sound choices whether in the classroom or on social media", Roberts said. "We don't want a veto of the bill because there is just too much good stuff in there for our schools, and for our students and families that need that, especially in Parkland". They need to make sure no one unsafe can ever get their hands on a weapon like this again, and they need to take necessary action to protect the children in all our schools and beyond. Any changes to the measure would require that the proposal to be "bounced" back to the Senate, he pointed out. Several representatives spoke out in favor of removing the program.

Still, Hutton said, "I'd give anything for this to be a normal trip".

"I have begged. I have pleaded".

"To walk out would be a chance to take a stand", Nolan wrote in her post.

In a final emotional entreaty on the amendment, Moskowitz noted that he graduated with Feis, who also attended Douglas High. "Never once", he said.

There are 41 Democrats in the House and 76 Republicans.

More than three dozen of the Democrats' other amendments also failed, nearly exclusively along party lines.

DeVos visited Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland on Wednesday.

Cruz's public defender has said he'll plead guilty if prosecutors take the death penalty off the table, which would mean a life prison sentence.

Oliva, the bill's sponsor, said the reason was partly due to "timing", because the Legislature was in session when the school shooting occurred. "Is it possible this was the last straw?"
