Deb Gist as Hamlet


The lawyer for students at Hope High School has filed a motion in Superior Court that seeks to stop the Providence School Department from continuing to implement a six-period day at the high school.

Miriam Weizenbaum, who represents the students, said she filed the motion Thursday because she was frustrated with the lack of response from state Education Commissioner Deborah A. Gist, who has yet to rule on the students’ petition, despite the fact that classes started on Tuesday.

Weizenbaum filed a separate motion asking that the court order Gist to rule on the facts of the case, or, at the very least, to rule on her motion for a temporary restraining order.

All three parties — the School Board, the students and the commissioner’s office — are expected to appear in Superior Court Friday morning during a closed-door session with Judge Jeffrey A. Lanphear.
