I stand with our students

Dear MPS Family, 

The most recent school shooting in Parkland, Florida is moving many people - including our young people - to voice their concerns about school shootings and school violence. Our students deserve to not only feel safe, but be safe.

Students nationwide are planning three major events in the coming weeks to voice their concerns and to demand action. One of those efforts is on March 14th, the one-month anniversary of the Florida shootings. Students are being asked to leave their classrooms and walk out of school for 17 minutes; one minute for each life lost at Stoneman Douglas High School.

Our students have the constitutional right to free speech and peaceful assembly. We support student-led civic engagement efforts and actions, as long as they are done in a safe and respectful manner. I stand with our students.

In the weeks to come, you will receive additional information about guidelines for students who wish to participate on March 14. We ask you to help us shape this effort by giving us your feedback. Please send your thoughts to comm@milwaukee.k12.wi.us

Best,

Darienne B. Driver, Ed.D.

Superintendent of Schools

Please wait while we gather your results.
