At its previous regular meeting, the board discussed policies known as "Facility Standards" and "Identification of Students."
On the meeting agenda, the facility standards policy states: “To the extent permitted by law, schools will maintain separate restrooms, locker rooms and other similar facilities designated for and used only by persons based on the person’s biological sex. Individuals are required to use the facility that corresponds to their gender assigned at birth.”
The identification of students policy states that “district staff, educators and other district employees shall not promote, encourage or require the use of pronouns that are inconsistent with a student’s or other person’s biological sex as it appears on the individual’s birth certificate or other government-issued record.”
The American Civil Liberties Union wrote a letter to the board warning them that the policies violate state and federal laws. At the June 20 meeting, people registered to speak in support and opposition of the policies, but the board took no action on the items.
The special meeting will be held June 28 at 5 p.m. at the Keller ISD Education Center Boardroom, 350 Keller Parkway. Those wanting to speak in support or opposition of the policies must register to speak before the meeting.
