>Question of the Week: Getting Permission

>I want to do Day of Silence at my school. Should I talk to teachers or the principal beforehand? How do I get permission from my school?

We recommend that students, GSAs and other student groups try to work with their school to obtain the proper permission to hold Day of Silence activities. Supportive participation has more impact and makes for a more fun Day of Silence for everyone. Talk early with your school’s administration. Offer the organizing materials from DayofSilence.org so they know more about the event. Provide them with your group’s ideas or plan for DOS.
