Question Response Comments/Notes
1. Providing state tax credits and education savings accounts to enable parents to choose what school their child attends. S* I am in favor as long as the money the parents receive for other schools is equal to the public districts per student budget.
2. Reserving girls’ sports exclusively for biological females. U* Undecided for high school level sports.
3. Separating restrooms, locker rooms, and other privacy areas based on biological sex. S* Current locker room culture needs to change to be safe for all kids first.
4. Permitting students to discuss their Christian faith with others during non-class time on school premises. S
5. Allowing school personnel to refer students to abortion providers. O
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* I am always in favor of protecting parent rights that do not directly put the school district at jeopardy of violating state standards.
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 O* These should be approved with administration, under the direction of the school board, to preserve an appropriate balance of responsibility.
8. Providing curricula that advocates critical race theory and its emphasis on defining people as oppressors or oppressed based on group identity or privileges. S* I am in favor of teaching about the history of racism throughout the world, but do not support using critical race theory as defined above.
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. S* I support this because I am fiercely in favor of parent's rights to raise their children as they choose. Educators need to respect that.
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. O
