District policy moves ahead

The North Okanagan-Shuswap School District looking at regulation on sexual orientation

The North Okanagan-Shuswap School District board has given second reading to a regulation on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Trustee Jen Wilchuk says there were some changes from the original regulation which was looked at last month.

One noteworthy change was that the wording has been changed from “all students” to “all members of the school community (including students, parents, teachers, support staff and anyone involved with the district).”

This regulation will now go out to stakeholders for feedback before coming back to the board for further consideration.
