Vermillion To Discuss School Restroom Gender Policy

Vermillion To Discuss School Restroom Gender Policy

The Vermillion School Board will be holding a special meeting this evening to receive public input on their restroom policy.

The school board is currently in the process of developing a restroom gender policy for the school district.

Vermillion School Superintendent Damon Alvey says this is a really delicate issue for individuals…

Alvey adds that Vermillion is one of the first schools in the state taking a hard look at their bathroom policy…

The issue became the focus of attention by the school board when, Alvey told board members last month that from time to time, requests are received for students to be able to use bathrooms opposite of their birth gender.

Tonight’s board meeting will be held at 6:00 PM in the Vermillion City Hall meeting room.
