HISD superintendent’s statement on walkouts
— reported by the Houston Chronicle
All the students who participated in todayâ€™s walkouts will be disciplined. The parents of each student who participated will be contacted and informed of the studentâ€™s actions. Each student action associated with todayâ€™s events will be reviewed by school officials, and students may, at the discretion of the principal, be placed in detention or in-school suspension, and may also be subject to other sanctions.
If these demonstrations continue on Wednesday or another time in the future, the consequence for students who violate the standards of conduct will be more severe. A repeat of todayâ€™s demonstrations could cause students to be suspended for up to three days, or be removed.
