Nationwide, students, teachers, parents, and communities are preparing to "march for their lives" on March 24, in response to the February 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Other marches and rallies scheduled include a March 14 school walkout organized by the Women's March, and the April 20 National High School Walkout on the 19th anniversary of the Columbine shootings. Additional demonstrations could take place in the months to come, to rally for increased gun controls to ensure student safety.

It is important for charter schools to remember the following:

  • Schools who wish to support the participation of students and families in marches and rallies, should encourage students to first check into the charter school for a portion of the instructional day in order to claim ADA.
  • Alternatively, charter schools could consider adjusting their instructional calendar to exclude the dates of the scheduled marches and rallies to avoid a reduction in ADA.
