Randklev said the district decided to act before the game rather than wait because school polices were violated. That decision did not sit well with parents, many of whom thought the district did not do a thorough investigation.
“The punishment doesn’t fit the crime,” Michelle Brandstetter said. “They rushed to judgment. There were no illegal actions that took place.”
Compounding the problem is the fact that the district will not say what the students did wrong, a position Randklev continued to defend on Sunday. He would only say that school policies were violated by the performance.
