A Petition for the Henderson County Board of Public Education
to Support and Adopt the HB2 Resolution
Petition: The federal government, through the Departments of Justice and Education, is threatening the withholding of federal funds to schools if they do not comply with the government’s misrepresented and attempted rewrite of the 1972 Title IX law.
Not only have the federal courts ruled that the Department of Education’s interpretation of Title IX is not legally binding, but this top-down, one-size-fits-all policy by the federal government disregards the insights, suggestions and solutions by local parents, school districts and states in how best to meet and accommodate the safety and privacy of both transgender and non-transgender students.
We, the undersigned, urge the Henderson County Board of Public Education to support this Resolution because the HB2 law states and requires, “local boards of education to establish single-sex multiple occupancy bathroom and changing facilities” as well as the flexibility for local schools to “provide accommodations such as single occupancy bathroom or changing facilities…” when needed.
We, the undersigned, urge the Henderson County Board of Public Education to adhere to its constitutional right of state and local governance by supporting this HB2 Resolution.
