Tyler ISD Students Face Unexcused Absence

A spokesperson for Tyler ISD says the students who ducked out of school for the protest will face disciplinary action.

"These kids are facing an unexcused absence and it will depend individually on each student whether that becomes a disciplinary issue based on how many other absences that they may have had," says Katherine Erickson, Director of Communications of TISD.

Erickson says the students could face in school suspension or community service. Also, we checked and the school district says it will not lose money over this mornings' absences.
