For those interested in the History and information about the ONLY Gender Neutral Bathrooms in the new schools, you can find the history and the documents below. The School District needs to start acting with Transparency and Integrity.
For years the District has taken care of every student who needed a separate bathroom facility. We applaud the way the District dealt with the situation in the past. Bathroom choice was available to ALL students.
Currently the District has labeled the new bathrooms in their renovated and new schools as ONLY Gender Neutral. Our children do not have a CHOICE in which bathroom to use. Boys and Girls share a bathroom area. This is against Ohio Building Code.
After the Building Levy passed, the District instituted a Master Plan Design Phase. The Community was involved in the Designing of the new schools. Here is a link to the District’s website: Design Phase Overview
Watch the videos of the Community Meetings. Having ONLY Gender Neutral bathrooms are not part of the presentations: Community Meetings
There were Building Committees for each school. Having ONLY Gender Neutral bathrooms was not discussed. The Elementary Committees were shown pictures of Private Toilet Rooms. They were not discussed as a group as being ONLY Gender Neutral.
