Second East High walkout goes districtwide, draws attention of parents and lawmakers

Levy apologized for his reaction to students who expressed concern during the assembly in an email to families on Wednesday morning. But the apology was not enough to assuage the students’ concerns.

“We decided on a walkout, missing class that would make a noise in a school,” Jovag said. “A lot of students are really not feeling very safe in our school and a lot of students are having a hard time dealing with all this. It’s really emotional.”

Whitman Bottari, formerly a senior and an organizer of the walkout, said the group is seeking a commitment from the district to implement what they see as an inadequate sexual harassment and assault policy, and to implement the plan. a timeline.

“Students in the East need to know what sexual harassment and harassment are,” she said. “Every student in the past needs to know how to report and what steps will be taken after reporting.”

Parents expressed concern

State Sen. Melissa Eggard, D-Madison, a parent of Eastern graduates and a current student, was also present at Friday’s walkout to show her support.
