Vancouver school trustees will vote next week on whether to proceed with revisions to the district’s sexual orientation policy.
Trustee Mike Lombardi says staff has made recommendations following three public meetings and more than one-hundred speakers.
He adds most changes will clarify wording.
“There was one about gender neutral washrooms, everybody thought it was going to create building a new washroom in every school, and that they would become washrooms that would hold more than one person, and so it’s been changed, the wording is very clear, a single stall gender-neutral washroom.”
Under the new policy, schools will try to lessen or eliminate the segregation of students by sex.
The revisions will be discussed June 11th, and could proceed to a vote at the next board meeting on June 16th.
