Schedule change upsets many
By RODNEY D. BOAM
About 150 Preston High School students walked out of class last Tuesday about 2:15 p.m. to protest a proposed hybrid schedule the Preston school board would like to implement next fall. They trooped down State Street shouting their opposition to the proposed schedule change. But it was otherwise a peaceful march.
“There was an anonymous entry on Facebook about the walkout. I don’t know who sent it. We decided to join it,” said Caitlin Elgan, a junior at PHS.
The controversial schedule has caused a riff between some administrators and students at PHS for some time.
Elgan and friend Olivia Seamons stood before the trustees last Tuesday night and presented a petition circulated by students. They also presented their objections and research they prepared concerning the proposed schedule.
The students said they came up with the petition on their own and it had nothing to do with any of their teachers. They also presented their findings in a faculty meeting prior to the school board meeting.
