    "parents allegedly encouraged"

    ... based on a claim made by the boy.

    the school district's letter to parents makes no mention of what the boy's parents may or may not have done.

    the district later left the following comment on that page:

    Granite School District  Update - The parents did NOT provide the weapon to the student, nor did they encourage him to bring it to school for his defense. The weapon was obtained through an extended family member temporarily living with this family.
    so yeah, the diarist jumped the gun with that title.
