Superintendent Conrado Garcia said campus security helped to deescalate the situation and additional police officers assisted students, making sure they left campus safely.

West Oso High School Principal Terry Avery said that despite everything he feels that the correct decision was made for the betterment of his students. 

"Unfortunately I think the right decision was made for our students in our community," Avery said. " We wish that we didn't have to go through all the things that we did in order to get here, but all in all it was the right decision." 

Additionally, the district said it will use the incident to review and enhance its safety and security plan and work more closely with campus security in order to avoid another incident from happening.

Following a closed session, the board voted to keep Avery as principal of West Oso High School. During public comment, some community members spoke up in defense of the principal and his actions on that day.
