Palatine School District Votes in Favor of Unrestricted  Transgender Access in Public School Locker Rooms

 

Last month, I wrote you about a special meeting of the Palatine School District to consider opening restrooms, locker rooms, showers, etc. to those of the opposite sex.  I wanted to provide you a quick update as to the outcome of the meeting.

Approximately 500 parents and students attended the Palatine District 211 board meeting to discuss the pros and cons of the controversial policy which states:

“Students shall be treated and supported in a manner consistent with their gender identity, which shall include students having access to restrooms and locker rooms that correspond to their gender identity.”

Though some parents called for a district-wide referendum, the board approved the policy by a vote of 5-2, with two board members dissenting. This ends a four-year battle to lift a requirement that transgender students use privacy stalls in District 211’s five high schools.

The new rule will take effect when second semester classes begin in January 2020.

Please pray for the protection of the children of the Palatine School District. Pray for their safety and for their minds and souls as they are taught the indoctrination of the LGBTQ lifestyle.
