BEMIDJI, MN (KDLM) - A school walkout to protest gun violence in Bemidji has been canceled.

Bemidji area Schools Superintendent told the Bemidji Pioneer he didn't support a Bemidji High School teacher's call for students and faculty to leave class next month to protest school shootings.

The protest had been organized by English teacher, Gina Marie Bernard and would have been part of the nationally organized protests across the country in the wake of a school shooting in Parkland, FLA.

District staff are weighing other options to speak to students about gun violence on March 14.
