Updated:

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Students at Terry Parker High School held a sit-in Monday at the school.

The students want their African-American studies course to be year-long instead of one semester.

Superintendent Dr. Nikolai Vitti said at Monday night’s school board meeting that the students would not be disciplined. He also said they are talking with administrators about their concerns.

Vitti said he is committed to exploring ways the district can offer the course as a full credit this fall.
