A special meeting is set for Thursday, October 10, 2019, for the public to speak up on whether transgender students should be allowed unrestricted access to locker rooms in the District 211 high schools. District 211 is the largest high school district in Illinois with 12,000 students and five high schools.
The 6:30 p.m. closed session, followed by citizen appearances at 7:30 p.m., will be held at the G.A. McElroy Administration Center, 1750 S. Roselle Road, Palatine, Illinois 60067. This will be the last public meeting before the school board votes on the policy change.
What’s at stake?
Under the current school district policy, transgender students being accommodated by being allowed to change in privacy stalls in the locker rooms meant for the gender for which they identify. However, the proposed policy states:
“No student shall, based on sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity be denied equal access to programs, activities, services, or benefits or be limited in the exercise of any right, privilege, advantage, or denied equal access to educational and extracurricular programs and activities.”
What does this proposed policy mean? If passed, transgender females (boys who believe themselves to be female) and transgender males (girls who believe themselves to be male) will be allowed to openly dress in the opposite biological sex locker rooms.
QUESTION: What about the rights of thousands of biological females and males attending Palatine high school who may feel threatened, embarrassed, or violated with transgenders openly changing in full view in open dressing areas?
Parents and citizens living within the District 211 school district are urged to attend this Thursday’s hearing to oppose the policy.
- Ask forgiveness for the complacency of Illinois Christians for not standing for their faith and for electing ungodly elected officials to make policy in the public schools and state legislature.
- Raise up an army of Christians to champion the cause of Christ.
- Put a halt to the anti-Christ LGBTQ agenda in Illinois and America.
