When the School Board voted to approve allowing the Superintendent to create the regulations for Transgender students (I voted no), I asked why we weren't being provided with those regulations prior to the vote. I was told by our School Board attorney that the SB Chair told her not to make the draft public. I was also told that the Superintendent would inform the public once the regulations were finished.
So, I received an email from our Media Dept that the regulations were completed and would be sent to parents.
Then I received a long "newsletter" and at the bottom in small print it included a link to "policy updates" but never mentioned the transgender policies. When you click on the link it takes you to a confusing page that lists over 50 policy/regulation updates.
As I expected, those in charge just didn't want the public to be informed. Here are the actual regulations that are now being implemented. Read for yourself....
Here is the link that the Supe's office provided in the newsletter: https://www.vbschools.com/about_us/our_leadership/school_board/policies_and_regulations/updates
1. Any student can use any restroom or locker room of their choice and staff cannot question it.
2. A student may choose to be called a different name or pronoun without a parent's permission or knowledge.
3. If a student or employee refuses to use a certain pronoun, they could be charged with bullying and harassment. The pronouns that will be used are "he, she, they".
4. Students of the opposite sex may be able to share the same overnight accommodations on overnight trips.
