CHICO, Calif - Students at several Chico schools are planning to take part in the "National School Walkout" on Wednesday.

A nationwide show of support for those affected by the Parkland, Florida school shooting and to speak out on issues surrounding gun laws.

Action News Now spoke with officials at Chico Unified School District.

They have been working closely with students at Pleasant Valley High School, Chico High School and Chico Junior High.

At 10 a.m. Wednesday each school is planning its own student-led show of support.

At Chico Junior High, students will stand outside classrooms and observe a 17-minute long moment of silence to honor the 17 killed in the Florida school shooting.

Students at PV high will march together to the stadium on campus.

And Chico High students will gather in the courtyard to talk about issues related to gun violence.

District officials say all the events are student-led and no students are allowed to leave campus during their events and it is completely voluntary for students.

Teachers will remain in class to conduct lessons for students who do not wish to take part.
