How can students safely express their views?
The District recognizes the First Amendment rights of students and community members to express their opinions and beliefs on controversial topics. But while at school, students’ expression cannot disrupt or attempt to disrupt the educational process. The classrooms are places for learning, and the District’s focus will be on educating all of its students. The District hopes discussions will remain civil. However, the District prohibits bullying, harassment, intimidation and discrimination of students. School counselors are available to all students for further discussion or for help reporting bullying, harassment, intimidation or discrimination.
