Protecting Students Resolution WHEREAS, the __________________________School Board’s sacred oath is to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of Ohio; and WHEREAS, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 was enacted into law to ensure that “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the belief of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.” Further, original and existing Title IX regulations acknowledge “physiological differences between male and female sexes,” and
WHEREAS, biological sex, male and female, is one such objective, scientific fact. Denying the reality of biological sex destroys the foundational truth upon which education rests; and WHEREAS, encouraging encounters with opposite sex children in bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers make the schools culpable for the anxiety, bullying, and possible sexual harassment or abuse which school authorities are tasked to prevent; and WHEREAS, forcing students to use the bathroom with members of the opposite sex harms all students by violating their rights to privacy and making them participate in situations most adults would object to; and WHEREAS, accommodating students struggling with gender dysphoria by providing access to single-stall restrooms or similar alternatives made available to any student who feels uncomfortable using a communal facility designated for their biological sex, regardless of reason, gives such students a private location and avoids violating the rights of others students; and WHEREAS, Title IX does not require schools to eliminate district facilities for biological males and females. It recognizes that there are “enduring biological differences” between the sexes, as recognized by the Supreme Court of the United States, and that in light of those differences there are privacy and safety concerns justifying sex-separated privacy facilities. Title IX allows schools to provide separate facilities on the basis of sex, without committing sex discrimination, therefore, be it:
RESOLVED, that the __________________________ School District declares its' support for Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and recognizes the original and authentic meaning of the law to be a historical and continuing pillar in upholding the rights and opportunities of women and girls. BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that with this action the _________________________ School Board expresses its unwavering commitment to excellence in education for all, education that empowers each student to flourish, to succeed, and to reach his or her full potential as a member of the next great generation of Americans.
