San Antonio Independent School District, or otherwise known as SAISD, protects against the discrimination of a student or employee on the basis of race, religion, color, age, national origin, sex, and disability. However, the statement has failed to keep abreast with the social and political advancements of today and include sexual or gender preference/expression among the many other reasons a member of SAISD can be discriminated against. The problem we plan to solve is SAISD’s lack of inclusion of sexual orientation and gender identity in its Non-Discrimination Statement as it is a matter of protection of equal education and safety for all -- not a matter of personal belief.
