A group of parents crowded into the Nixa school board meeting Thursday night (5-9) some of them to talk about a policy banning the confederate flag.

District policy does not allow clothing with the confederate flag in schools.

About 50 people attended the regular meeting.  Last week some students were suspended after wearing a shirt that showed a confederate flag in honor of the late Colby Snider.  About a dozen people shared their opinions with the board at the meeting.
    
The school board reaffirmed its policy banning the confederate flag.
