Parisio said it's an important distinction that her son's truck was parked on a public street. "I asked the police and the district attorney's office if he did anything wrong and they said no," Parisio said.
However, school officials disagreed. They told Parisio state law gives them "the right to search any of the student's vehicles no matter where they're parked or what they're doing during school hours," she said.

On the other hand at least one student (maybe more) knew there was a rifle and ammo within walking distance.
You could pack a lot of weapons in a car and park it just of school property - I bet there is going to be at least one major school shooting in 2010 in America.

Willows High Principal Mort Geivett's reaction to the reversal was disappointment.
"I'm disappointed, but not surprised, due to the political climate we have here and the fact we have school board members who are going up for re-election and a superintendent who might be running for re-election," he said.
Of greater concern, Geivett said, is "the decision clearly compromises the safety and security of kids and staff members on my campus and this clearly goes beyond Willows High."
Willows Unified Superintending Steve Olmos' response was one of confusion.
The decision "has left me dumbfounded, almost speechless," he said.
The county board "is undermining our authority. They are definitely saying we don't have jurisdiction off campus," he complained.
