The students didn’t come to the meeting without some impressive allies including a Craig Deluz who came representing state Assemblymen Tim Leslie and Doug LaMalfa. He also noted that his office had been in contact with state Sen. Sam Aanestad who had asked him to keep him informed of the situation.
“This is a real opportunity for the board to gain some real information that is really not understood about the law that protects students rights,” said Deluz. “In this case on behalf of our offices, I would urge you to protect the students’ rights to freedom of speech and save yourself from any potential lawsuit. This is your right to do as a board and you should make your voice heard to the principal.”
