Vancouver School Board (Canada)

The Vancouver School Board will spend more time working on a revised sexual orientation and gender identity policy in response to copious phone calls, letters and emails received from parents.

An April 10 memo from VSB superintendent Maureen Ciarniello said the policy could go to the board for approval May 20.

But after more than 30 delegations registered to speak at the VSB’s education and student services meeting, May 14, Ciarniello said that staff would reword segments of the policy and committee will review it again, June 11 before a recommendation for approval by the board.

“Parents are feeling we’re forcing this on students and parents, and it’s not the case,” said Ken Clement, trustee and chairperson of the education and student services committee.
