A law that more tightly restricts public schools’ approach to gender identity and sexual orientation has caused school districts to pull LGBTQ support guides and restrict some students’ use of bathrooms and locker rooms to gender assigned at birth.
Those are some of the changes presented to the State Board of Education Wednesday as the Board heard a report of how 10 school districts are complying with the controversial law (HB 1557) passed during the last regular Session.
The 10 school districts had been warned by letter last month that they have policies that might not comply with the new law. “Ultimately we found that these districts are in compliance with the law,” said Tom Grady, Chairman of the state Board of Education.
