Parents want answers from Kellogg School District about "kill list"

KELLOGG, Idaho - Changes are coming to the Kellogg School District since the school board announced Wednesday night it would comply with the requests of several parents. 

The Shoshone County Sheriff says the school district has expelled a Kellogg High School student accused of writing a "kill list," which included the names and addresses of several fellow students. 

The student's expulsion was one of the demands several parents brought forward during a school board meeting Wednesday night, but that wasn't the only thing they wanted to accomplish. 

Parents gave the board a list of questions they wanted answered, as well as a list of policies and procedures they wanted changed. Some of their biggest questions - parents wanted to know why the school never interviewed students who were on this "kill list." They also asked why parents weren't notified about it right away. 

The school board says administrators reviewed the list of student names and addresses, and didn't think it was an immediate threat. But parents still don't think the school properly handled the situation. 

"If I would have know that child had my address and my child was on that list," said one parent, Chris Nusz, "and I saw that child in the public, and we were walking towards each other and my child was with me, I would have put myself in between my child and him. So in that regards, things weren't followed." 

That leads to a few policy changes the parents are asking for. First, if a student is threatened in any way, they believe parents should be notified right away. Second, that teachers and staff should go through special training to better recognize potential threats. Third, while a student is under suspension, they should not be allowed on campus at all. 

The school board says it does plan to accommodate the changes parents are requesting. The board is also encouraging parents to join the district's committee for creating policies and procedures.
