Anoka-Hennepin School District To Vote On Policy
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The highly debated Anoka-Hennepin sexual orientation policy will come to a vote Monday night.
The school board will take a vote on the “Respectful Learning Environment-Curriculum Policy” during its meeting at 6:30 p.m.
The proposed policy states it is not the school district’s role to take positions on political, religious, social or economic issues.
“Teachers and educational support staff shall not attempt in the course of their professional duties to persuade students to adopt or reject any particular viewpoint with respect to these issues,” the policy states.
In discussion of those issues, the policy states, “district staff shall affirm the dignity and selfworth of all students, regardless of their race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex/gender, marital status, disability, status with regard to public assistance, sexual orientation, age, family care leave status or veteran status.”
The school board will vote on the issue Monday.
