Question Response Comments/Notes
1. Providing state tax credits and education savings accounts to enable parents to choose what school their child attends. S
2. Reserving girls’ sports exclusively for biological females. S* IF the federal government overrules, sports will have to change to 3 teams, or none, but girls will not be forced to compete against boys.
3. Separating restrooms, locker rooms, and other privacy areas based on biological sex. S* If the federal government oversteps it's bounds, and infringes on our children's right to separate bathrooms and locker rooms, construction will have to ensure privacy. We will not compromise.
4. Permitting students to discuss their Christian faith with others during non-class time on school premises. S* We cannot allow our freedom of speech and freedom of religion to be taken away.
5. Allowing school personnel to refer students to abortion providers. O* Why not refer to their parents or legal guardians for ALL health-related issues? In a state that doesn't even strip the medical decision rights of an unfit parent while a child is in foster care, the school should never supersede the parents on health issues.
6. Requiring signed permission (opt-in) from a parent before a student may participate in sex education classes or presentations on gender identity theory. S* This is a first thing policy change when I get there.
7. Increasing transparency by requiring videos or documents shown to students [which are not part of pre-approved curriculum] be preserved for easy review by administrator and parents S
8. Providing curricula that advocates critical race theory and its emphasis on defining people as oppressors or oppressed based on group identity or privileges. O
9. Requiring teachers to use "she" to describe a biological male student who identifies as a female, even if the teacher offered a reasonable alternative. O
10. Specifying in school policy that materials containing visual depictions of people engaging in sex acts or explicit written descriptions of people engaging in sex acts is not age-appropriate for the school’s curriculum and libraries. S* Though there are some who claim this as the "freedom to read", our children have the freedom to not be exposed to this. Not all books are age appropriate for school students, but in a free society, they may have access to those books OUTSIDE the school, where law enforcement can interpret what is pornographic and crosses the line for a minor.
