Latest statement from schools on bathroom policy

The Pickens school district released the below statement this morning following a called board meeting last evening.

 

 

   "There have been many serious safety concerns raised in the past few days. School board members, staff, and students have been threatened due to the administration’s implementation of Adams vs. St. John’s County School District.

   There have been death threats, student harassment, and vandalism of school property. The

District understands and acknowledges that it has the responsibility to protect its staff and students. However, the District has concerns that it may not be able to meet these recently increased demands.

   Therefore, the District shall return to bathroom procedures in place at the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year until it can consult with law enforcement and other safety professionals so that these concerns may be addressed.
  We ask that all of our stakeholders exercise patience and discretion until these matters can be resolved.
