A San Luis Obispo High School special education teacher has resigned after controversy erupted about an anti-LGBT letter he wrote to the school's newspaper editor. Former teacher Michael Stack's letter was in response to the May issue of the high school’s newspaper, SLO Expressions, which contained three articles focusing on LGBT issues. KCBX News spoke with San Luis Obispo Tribune reporter Nick Wilson, who has been covering this story.

Summer break is quickly coming to an end for most students along the Central Coast, but for the teachers at San Luis Obispo High School these final remaining days are being used to prepare for a worst case scenario on their campus.

On Wednesday, August 20, an alarm will sound on the school grounds of SLO High signaling an emergency situation. In this case it will be a practice drill, simulating a gunman—or active shooter—is among them.
