is writing on a wall the same as a terrorist threat?

Katy ISD thinks so, or at least they give the same punishment for both. I don’t understand anything about maintaining order in a school, so this makes no sense to me. A 6th grader wrote in permanent marker “I love Alex” and that has been categorized and punished as a Level 4 infraction. This has the same level of misconduct and punishment as drug possession, assault and making terroristic threats.

She’s been given a four-month assignment to an alternative school. Thankfully, the district attorney’s office opted not to prosecute her for a felony.

Does this make sense? Not to me.
