    Default School Walk Outs Planned in PA

    How many of you have kids in the school system here in PA?

    So far my kids are to young for their school to be involved. At least that is what I was told by the administration.

    Elementary and pre k thank god are not going to be involved in the walk outs scheduled on March 14th.

    I was told Central Bucks High School is going to walk out at least they said the students are planning to.

    This is the first letter sent to parents form the Super.

    CENTENNIAL SCHOOL DISTRICTOffice of the Superintendent of Schools48 Swan Way, Warminster, PA 18974-5448(215) 441-6000, Extension 11003 FAX: (215) 441-6101David E. Baugh, Ed.D.Dear Parents and Guardians;As you are probably aware, after the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida the student survivors have led a cry forchange. Part of that outcry was the scheduling of a nationwide student walkout in memory of the victims atMarjory Stoneman Douglas High School. The request is that students walk outside for 17 minutes, one minutefor every life lost at the high school.In Centennial, we are proud of these student leaders and respect their courage and demands for sensiblechange. In 2018, there has been a surge in school related shootings; even one is too many. The need forsensible change is undeniable.Many parents and guardians have reached out recently to ask what the district is going to do in response to thisscheduled walkout. I can tell you that we are going to take the lead from the students. Administration, at boththe high school and middle schools, is in constant contact with student leaders on this (and many other) topics.If our students decide to honor the national call for a walkout, we would encourage them to do so in a civil andorganized way. The concern of the administration and faculty is of course the safety of the students. Ourteachers are welcome to join the students as long as faculty who remain behind cover any students who choosenot to walkout.Administration will provide direction and support to the students should they walkout. Law enforcement,additional administrators, and even some Board of School Directors will be on hand to provide additional safetymeasures. At the end of the day, student safety is a driving priority, especially during this excellent teachingmoment.While we anticipate most reactions to occur at the high school, we do not want to diminish the First Amendmentrights of all our students. Building principals will be working closely with student leaders in all our schools toascertain student intentions. I want to reassure the community that Centennial School District will not disciplinestudents for participating in this effort; our intention is to maximize learning while continuing a robustconversation about school safety.If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.Sincerely,David E. Baugh, Ed.D.Superintendent of Schools




    Here is the second notification.

    Thinking about Safe Schools
    As we are moving through our national collective grief over the latest school shooting in Parkland, FL, school safety remains a big concern for all parents and school employees.
    It is imperative to realize that our schools remain a safe place for all of our children. While the national headlines and the student survivors of Florida are calling for necessary changes, is vital to know that our schools remain statistically the safest place on the planet for our students.
    Since the Columbine massacre, schools have been adapting and changing practices. Our own schools are very different from what they were twenty years ago. Far from perfect, we are continuing to work to prevent crisis situations like Florida or any of the almost countless other school shootings. We are continuing to evaluate and work on behalf of all our students. Our driving goal is to ensure that all of our students are encountering success and growth in the safest surroundings possible.
    That said, we have a great relationship with law enforcement who are actively working with us to evaluate current systems, helping us design trainings and guiding us in our journey to remain a safe and welcoming school system. We have a number of systems in place that provide active and helpful response in minutes. While we think we are good, we are working to be become better.
    Many responses to these situations, including more cameras, physical plant changes and technological interventions, have already occurred. Investments in school security will continue moving forward.
    It is intriguing that in the few weeks since the Parkland, FL tragedy, the students' voices has been able to affect more discourse and change than decades of governmental inaction. As one who stays up at night thinking about keeping 5,500 students safe, as well as the employees who are committed to their education and well-being, I would ask the community to help us in this vital work. Many voices and many people working on the same goals can only help.
    If you see something, say something. Recommendations are always welcome. We have an anonymous Electronic Suggestion Box/Tip Line that you can access via this link,
    https://www.centennialsd.org//selectsurvey/TakeSurvey.aspx.

    We will soon have a phone number to manage anonymous tips.
    As a district, we continue to strive to improve our security, as well as the success of our students. As a community, our schools are a community resource. Together, we can work to make certain that they are safe and inviting learning communities.
    Warmly,
    Dr. David E. Baugh
    Superintendent of Schools

    "Sensible change" again.....in each of the first two paragraphs /sigh/.
    But then he states the falsehood that schools are a safe place and that schools have been working hard on that......since 1999! So 18 years later "Big Education" has learned little or nothing at all as evidenced by the administration supported walkout.
    Yes, this is a first amendment right, but see how your first amendment right is supported when you do something the school administration disagrees with, and your child is suspended and sent to a hospital emergency department for psychological evaluation.

    Actually if you remember children in school do not have first amendment rights.

    Remember all those t shirt law suites and how they found the school district was within their rights to not allow pro vet t shirts? Something about dress code rules.

    I am sure there are some for student conduct.

    The sensible word and one voice got my attention.

    That is TRUANCY, and illegal. See what the school says if you take your kid out of school, and don't have an excuse in which they approve.

    They should tag a make-up day to the end of the school year for all who participate.
    If at first you don't succeed try a different angle.

    I guarantee you 99% of those kids couldnt give a rats ass what they are getting out of class for.
    Its just that, getting out of class. Like walleye hunter said, make them make that day up in the summer,
    that will put an end to this stupid "walk out".

    Yes. In this school administrator's opinion, the first and second amendments are nothing more than a convenience. And these people control the education of children.

    Even worse, now they are controlling their minds, they are brainwashing an entire generation.
