Patterson Joint Unified School District Board Meeting

Patterson USD is considering an amendment to their anti-discrimination policies, that would require school staff to “out” children and teens to their parents: meaning teachers will be forced to speak with parents if they believe students are LGBTQ+.
Apart from being completely unnecessary, this policy would be in direct opposition to the privacy guidelines set by the State Board of Education and all students right to privacy enshrined in CA State Law.
Such actions have been attempted and challenged in other districts around the state. The motivation behind these actions is to discourage students from being themselves at school. Fortunately, CA law is on the side of students and privacy, and similar actions such as at Chino Valley USD have been halted by CA courts. A similar action by Clovis USD is currently being challenged.
Community members who are concerned about LGBTQ+ freedoms and privacy protection are encouraged to attend this public board meeting and comment.

The event is finished.
