Willis said students regularly wear Confederate flags on their clothing at school.
The school district sent WJAX a statement:
"The school district respects a student’s right to self-expression; however, our policy states that the right to self-expression may not infringe upon the rights of others and cannot interfere with the orderly educational process," the district wrote. "Students raised concerns about the display of the Confederate flag on campus. Therefore, to prevent any potential disruption to the school environment, the school’s administration followed policy by asking that the student remove the flag from the vehicle while on school grounds.Administrators met with the students and his parents to reach a resolution that respects the rights of all students. No disciplinary action has been taken against the student."
The teen's friends put Confederate flags on their trucks to show support for him on Tuesday.
