PARENTAL BILL OF RIGHTS
- Educators should continue to not discuss our:
- Personal views/opinions on Politics with students (including voting guidance).
- Religious views/opinions with students.
- The Parents’ Bill of Rights adds a couple more layers to the “forbidden conversation with students” list:
- Do not enter into a conversation with students about your personal views/opinions on sexual orientation or gender.
- Do not enter into a conversation with students about your personal views/opinions on race or ethnicity.
- Do not enter into a conversation with students about your personal views/opinions on history.
- Teach your subject’s curriculum using District-provided resources only. You have been supplied approved materials on the appropriate grade/subject area on the Learning Network. Give good instruction around that curriculum.
- If you wish to use additional resources (YouTube, etc.), you should use sound educational judgement, as always, to be sure the material is appropriate for your students. If you still have questions, speak to your supervisor for clarification/approval, as the State is holding administration responsible for the instruction taking place in their schools.
- The District has instructed teachers to utilize the names in MyStudent for class purposes. If a student desires another name or nickname, you may have a conversation with the student to let them know their parents need to make the online changes for you to be compliant.
- If parents have not completed the online selections for their child, and there are several opportunities for parents to opt out students, the District has stated that they will support teachers when situations arise.
- If you still have questions, please contact your Business Rep for further information.
