Support Parental Rights in Chino Valley Unified School District
School districts across the country are attempting to unilaterally push sensitive social issues on our school children in the classroom. Parents believe that they should have a say about when and what their children learn about these issues. Unfortunately, currently Chino Valley Unified School District’s policy is not parent-friendly.
We are encouraging the adoption of “The Parental Rights in Child's Education Policy," a parent-friendly policy, in Chino Valley Unified School District to ensure parental rights in education are protected.
This proposed Parental Rights Policy accomplishes three goals:
- It incorporates existing California law that requires schools to provide notification to parents before topics regarding comprehensive sex education and HIV prevention education are taught, and it gives parents the ability to opt their child out of receiving that instruction so that parents can instruct their children on these sensitive topics at home in a manner consistent with the families’ beliefs.
- Recognizing that discussions of family structures, gender identity, sexual orientation, and harassment are also sensitive topics, it requires schools to provide the same notification and opt-out to parents when these topics are discussed as when comprehensive sex education and HIV prevention are discussed. It merely adds a few additional topics to the list of topics where notification and the ability to opt-out are given.
- If the school gives any person permission to come on campus and to use restrooms, locker rooms, or showers designated for the opposite biological sex, then the school must give notice to parents so that parents with privacy concerns can request access to alternative privacy accommodations (such as a single-user restroom, locker room or similar facility). This policy protects privacy rights by giving parents notice when those rights may be violated so that parents can request accommodations for their child.
This common-sense policy should be passed to protect and respect all students, parents, and religious beliefs.
Please join us as we call on the Chino Valley Unified School District to support parental rights by adopting "The Parental Rights in Child’s Education Policy."
