Question Response Comments/Notes
1. Providing state tax credits and education savings accounts to enable parents to choose what school their child attends. S* The only way to make public schools better is through competition for taxpayer's funds.
2. Reserving girls’ sports exclusively for biological females. S* Anything else is ridiculous.
3. Separating restrooms, locker rooms, and other privacy areas based on biological sex. S* I'm currently pushing for the district to make all restrooms and locker rooms individual rooms only.
4. Permitting students to discuss their Christian faith with others during non-class time on school premises. S* It's called the First Ammendment.
5. Allowing school personnel to refer students to abortion providers. O* It's not the school's job.
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
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* We don't have to take part in their delusion.
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* If shown to students, those responsible will be brought up on charges of distributing pornograghy to minors. I will call the police myself, with or without board approval.
