I think that if a student does not get a ride by 30 minutes after the school event is over, then I think that they shouldn't come to begin with. The school authorities should not have to wait around at the event just because one person doesn't have a ride home. They could be doing something alot better than waiting with you until your ride gets there.

Side: yes

It doesnt matter if they have a ride or not, so if they want to just hang around or talk to some friends they can. Also, school authorities are stupid and pick on people when they might be talking to some one on a cell phone or just letting time go by before they have to go somewhere else.the administrators pick on certain students, sometimes by the way they look or act.

Do you really have no where better to go than the school? Find a better place to hang out.. go to starbucks or something where people actually go to hang out.

Side: yes

I think students should receive a ticket if they do not leave the event within the thirty minutes, because there shouldn't be a reason why you should stay after. This rule will show teens to be more responsible with planning time.

Side: yes

I believe that it makes perfect sense. For one it would definately prevent fights. It would also help stop illegal activities from going on after the event was over, whether it be a football game or a recital. I think it would also help the school look more decent , because if there are fewer incedents at school ,then it would allow our school and the students to look better in the eyes of others.

It looks really bad when people are hanging around forever after our volleyball games by the new gym. Everyone should just go home. You have better things to do than hang around school all night.

Do you honestly believe that EVERY person that stays after an event is tyring to fight, or commit some sort of crime? Fine the students that are causing problems and leave the ones that are honestly waiting alone

Side: No

It takes more to prevent a fight then telling everyone to leave after thiifrty minutes. A fight can happen at anytime. What happens if a fight happen when no one is around? Who will stop then?

Side: No

I feel this new policy is fair because there really should be no reason to stay at an event that has already ended. It should not be that hard to get a ride within 30 of it ending since the time for it to end is scheduled.

Side: yes

students do not need for some one to tell them to walk home. if a student is waiting for a paraticular person or has a particular reason why they need to stay then the police should leave well enough alone and just let the person be at peace with the world.

Side: No

Are you trying to have world peace or what????? This rule makes it easier for the teachers, and authorities. This will make students leave on time and not start fights or arguments with anybody!!!!!!!!!! =)

I think that students should not receive a ticket if they are still in the location where the event took place, because some students might not have a ride to pick them up after the event. Or maybe the student's ride might take longer to get to the location, because of how far they live,or how far the event was. The school should try to get rides back to the school, in that way it could be easier to for some parents to pick up their kid.

Side: No

I dont think they should because what if its important like a football game or a skating competition. if they want to stay they can!

Side: No

I don't think so because that's just a waste of a citation and, wastin the cop time pulling over a student. When they need to be in the streets catchin real criminals.

Side: No

because sam wat are they supposed to do wat would u have them do sam sit in the back of the class? they obviously dont have a bike and if they didnt they obviously wouldnt live close sam so thefore i dissagree with your statement and will not allow you to continue it any futher

Side: No

I think this is right because what if during the game you find out that your ride will be late. It isn't your fault that they told you too late causing you to get into problems.

Side: yes

no because what if there parents will be a min. and u have to wait because u don't have another way home u cant give that person a ticket for that.

Side: No

I don't think they should make students leave an event within thirty minutes because students go to these events to have fun and be with other people. If they make them leave as soon as its over many student will stop going causing these events to lose money.

Side: No

No I do not think that students should have to get ticket for being at an event for longer then thirty minutes because. Not everybody can get a ride form the event as soon as it ends some people leave to far away from the event an some people parents my not can pick them up within thirty minutes so thats why I think people should be able to stay after an event.

Side: No

If you live far away then you should be responsible enough to call your parents a little bit before the event is over to allow time for the drive over to pick you up.

Side: yes

We're not asking to stay the night, we just want some time for our parents or whom ever is picking us up to get there. If an event ends at eight but our only ride gets off at eight thirty, should that be a reason to give us a ticket? Granted, there are students that stay late and vandalize property but honestly, you can tell the difference between a waiting student and a mischevious juvenile.

Side: No

I believe that students should not receive a ticket after a thirty minute time period. Most of the students who are still at school are students who are in the school event or helping with one. Also parents do run late and if the school staff didnt want to wait around, then they shouldn't have taken the job.

Side: No

I dont think they should issue tickets just because someone cannot get a ride within thirty minutes. There are sometimes when people's parents or whoever they would get a ride from, may not be able to get there right away. They may be stuck in traffic, or something could have come up and thye have to find another ride. i also think its a bad idea because a lot of the people who can't get a ride right away also cannot afford to pay a ticket.

Side: yes

I think that students should not recieve a ticket if they do not leave an event within thirty minutes, because if they paid for that event and they want to stay there then they should be able to decide what they want to do. Even if it's not the most bright decision, if something were to happen to them, they would be held responsible for their own actions.

Side: No
1 point

No I don't think that the students should get a ticket for not leaving an event after 30 minutes. You never know what could happend. What if their ride had an emergency and can't make it on time! It's not the students fault. They will get a ride eventually.

Side: No
