Of the student population that attended Sandy High last year, 76% were white. While that makes minority students even more the minority at Sandy, a handful of students of various backgrounds are working on an effort they says will help students of color feel safe on campus.

Earlier this month, students Molly Izer, Josiah Rothwell, Becca Tamaad and Jake Billard created a petition calling on the Oregon Trail School District Board of Directors to ban the image of the Confederate flag from school campuses and "address racism and its perpetuation within SHS."
