School Board Waffling…, AN EMAIL FROM THE FAMILY FOUNDATION

The Family Foundation of Virginia sent out the email below today.

Prince William County School Board members plan to vote tomorrow and they need to hear from you!  The Board is scheduled to vote on the school district’s newly proposed restroom/locker room policy at its meeting tomorrow, Wednesday, September 21, at 7 pm.

At the Board’s last meeting two weeks ago, parents and concerned citizens made their voices loud and clear that these kinds of changes to our schools’ so-called “non-discrimination” policies are dangerous, demeaning, unnecessary, and fraught with legal landmines. Since that time, the Board has been inundated with emails and phone calls from both sides. But we understand that the majority have come from those opposing this change.

We are also hearing that several Board members are still on the fence about how they’ll vote tomorrow.

We believe this politically-motivated policy change can be defeated, but the school board members need to hear from the people that matter most to them – parents and residents.

Please CLICK HERE to email Board members and urge them to protect the safety and privacy rights of all school children and vote no on proposed changes to the so-called “non-discrimination” policy.

Also, if at all possible, please plan to attend Wednesday’s meeting to support the privacy rights of our school children! 

You can also sign up to speak during public comment.  To sign up, you must notify the Board Clerk by phone at 703.791.8709 or by email at pwcsclerk@pwcs.edu.

As you reach out to School Board members, here are some talking points for you to keep in mind:

1)    The policy is unnecessary. Official documents reveal that PWCS has had NO incidents, complaints, or problems relating to people who identify as transgender in the past 10 years! This is a classic “solution in search of a problem.”

2)    The policy is illegal. Both state (Dillon Rule) and federal law (Title IX), as well as the U.S. Constitution (fundamental right to bodily privacy; free exercise of religion) prohibit this kind of policy. Passing it will be in direct violation of the law. The Department of Education’s “guidance documents” have no force of law.

3)    The policy is dangerous. Allowing biological boys into girls’ bathrooms, locker rooms, showers, and rooms for over-night school trips puts students in real danger of assault, emotional trauma, and violates their dignity and privacy rights.

4)    Major lawsuits over similar policies are currently underway in state and federal courts. The Virginia Supreme Court is currently hearing a case on this same policy from Fairfax County Schools. Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court has already intervened to stop enforcement of a similar policy in Gloucester County, VA. It makes no sense to ram this change through in light of the lawsuits already underway.

5)    The policy will subject PWCS to serious liability and could cost the taxpayers millions. Not only is it likely that the School Board will be immediately sued over the legality of the policy, but the School Board will likely be liable for any harms that occur to students as a result of these policies (including the violation of students’ Constitutional right to bodily privacy). Millions of taxpayer dollars will be diverted away from education in order to defend countless lawsuits.

With enough public outcry from concerned parents, it is not too late to stop these dangerous policies that jeopardize the safety and dignity of every public school student in Prince William County.  Even in Fairfax County the school board has postponed making drastic changes due in part to citizen input.  Other school boards in Virginia have rejected the President’s bullying.  But the school board needs to hear from you!

  1. Good luck with your school board . My experience with school board though is their minds are made up and all they do is allow people to vent out their opinions. Then they do .their elitist opinion was anyway.

    The ventings make people later say, I tried my best .In time their ardor cools down and the board makes a statement that after listening to all opinions, they decide to do what they decided before the meetings.

    1. Politicians do listen to the voters, but sometimes they only listen when the voters scream at them.

      If nothing else, we can throw the bums out. Does happen, especially at the local level when the problems get so serious they dissipate apathy.

      1. Good luck. My experience with voters is they have bad memories and seem to forget that nothing changes after the election. Yet, when election time comes again, voters still vote for the same incumbent anyway. This is Illinois though. Hopefully you Virginians have better memories.
