District: Schools to get 1st notice about Ferguson

KSAL StaffNovember 15, 2014

A suburban St. Louis school district says schools will get early notice once the Ferguson grand jury reaches a decision.

A letter on the Hazelwood School District’s site from Superintendent Grayling Tobias says the St. Louis County prosecutor’s office will alert districts 24 hours before the media if the decision is on a weekend.

If it’s a weekday, Tobias says districts will learn three hours before media, so students can be sent home before potential protests. District spokesman Jack Wang says districts won’t be told what the decision is.

The grand jury is expected to decide this month whether to charge white Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, an 18-year-old who was black and unarmed.

A prosecutor’s office spokesman didn’t return messages seeking comment.
