We, the undersigned, demand that you the staff members at this particular Elementary Schools in Boone County, and the Boone County Board of Education revise your policies towards children contact with their non-custodial parents, and that you do not deny children contact with their non-custodial parents, unless it has been legally stipulated. **************************************************************************************************** Background: For the purpose of privacy on this petition, we will refer to the kid as \"the daughter,\" and we will refer to the father as \"the father.\" On Wednesday, January 23rd, 2008, the ten-year-old daughter received a visit from her father, at the daughter\'s Elementary School in Florence, KY. The father was taking some cupcakes to the daughter in celebration of her 10th birthday. Once in the Principal\'s office, the father spoke with the Secretary, who agreed to go and get the daughter from her classroom, so the daughter could say hello to the father. Before going to the daughter\'s classroom, the secretary looked in the school files and saw the court order that states that the father is a non custodial parent. Then, the secretary told the father he could not see the daughter. There is nothing that addresses children contact with non-custodial parents in the current 2007-2008 Student Handbook; and there is nothing in the court order that prevents the father from greeting the daughter while she is in school. Not allowing children to have contact with their non-custodial parents while children are at school is a discriminatory act and a civil rights violation. **************************************************************************************************** This petition will be sent to: All the school staff members that were involved in the incident, and to the people below: Ms. Margaret Spellings, US Secretary of Education Mr. G. Michael Payton, Esq., Executive Director of the Ohio Civil Rights Commission
