Parent Says Shreveport School Leaders Did Not Follow Policy
Caddo school board leaders heard from one parent who says policies were not followed after two big fights at Southwood High School.
Chandra Baker told the board her daughter came home from school on Thursday and said she was terrified and did not want to go to school on Friday. Baker says her child's life was threatened by some other girls. She prayed with her daughter and she took her to school Friday. But things escalated. Baker says her daughter was waiting in the hallway to be escorted by security to a class when other girls jumped her. She defended herself. And now her daughter has been suspended and could face expulsion. Baker says the principal did call her on Saturday to say the policy was not followed. Baker says none of the students involved in the fights were questioned before they were suspended.
Baker wants the discipline handed out against her daughter overturned and she wants policies to be followed in the future.
The Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office has sent more deputies to the school to quell the violence at the school. Shreveport Police are also sending extra patrols by the school each day to make sure there is no more fighting.
On Thursday of last week, 14 teenagers were suspended for fighting and on Friday and 8 girls were suspended for fighting.
