Policy changes at Doherty High School

Posted: Updated:

COLORADO SPRINGS -

Starting on Monday, students at Doherty High School who are not wearing their student IDs while on campus could face disciplinary action.

The new policy is in response to the off campus shooting incident on September 22, 2017. One student was shot during lunch while across the street from the school.

That student suffered non-life threatening injuries and there have not been any arrests in the case though suspects have been identified. Colorado Springs police have said the incident was not random and that the student was targeted.

The new ID policy was part of a roll out of a larger policy change at the school in response to the incident. Doherty students have been given the opportunity to replace their ID's for free this week and the school also handed out lanyards in an effort to make participation easier.

The school sent an email to parents stating the new policy will be effective Monday, October 9th, with students getting after school detention for a first violation and as much as suspension depending on how many more occur. The school stresses, students have been complying with the policy so far this week while it has remained voluntary.

The school has also modified their off campus policy and made changes to the lunch time rules in an effort to enhance student safety.
