LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The parents of Arbor View High School students who were the targets of racist social media posts will be speaking out at a CCSD Board of Trustees meeting Thursday.

The Board of Trustees plans to address communication protocols between the school, staff and parents when serious incidents that risk student safety take place.

Two Arbor View students, who police say were behind those racially charged posts, appeared in court on Friday.

One of the students continued his plea until April 12 and the second student admitted to a felony count of making terroristic threats with multiple victims.

Parents say those charges are not enough.

Those concerned parents want to make an urgent plea to the Board of Trustees.

"This is not a joke, this is not just our sons, these are the sons of the Clark County School District which means that could be your kid or your niece, nephew, it could be the kid of someone making these decisions,” says Consuela Nicole. “So are you going to not make the decision because its not at your doorstep? When will to become important to you?"

The meeting is scheduled for 5 p.m. at the CCSD Education Center near Flamingo Road and Eastern Avenue.
