A Camas Mom talks about her experience opting her son out of CSE in the Camas School District.
Parents' Rights In Education
MY EXPERIENCE WITH OPTING OUT...


"I was never notified in any format that my 6th grader would be participating in a sex ed program beginning the week after spring break. My son came home the Thursday prior to spring break to inform me of this. I went on the Camas district office website and found out that opting out was not so easy. After parents view the aids/hiv portion of the program they can fill out a request to opt our kids out. (That does not mean it will be approved.) I called the district office who forwarded me to the school my son attends, Skyridge Middle School in Camas WA to ask about the opt out form.

CSD Community Equity Forum
Parents Rights In Education

I attended this to get an idea of what is going on in our school district. They are encouraging all district employees to use their preferred pronouns after all communications (he/him, she/her, they/them). They are hoping to push many of these ideas down to the elementary level. The school board equity rules allows any child who identifies as a different gender to use the bathrooms, locker rooms, I think even sports participation can be based on gender preferences. I'm homeschooling my elementary and middle school kids this year but when my daughter, who is in 10th grade and attending our school district's online only school, overheard me discussing the pronouns use, she told me her teachers are doing that after their names in their emails to her. I don't believe many parents are aware this is happening. There is definitely an agenda being pushed. I don't know yet what the implementation of this is in every school or age level but there are definitely those who hope to get it to all of them. Parents need to pay attention and not be afraid to speak up. Don't let the pressure of political correctness keep you from voicing your concerns if you have them.
