Come Support Dallas Oregon on January 19, 6:00 p.m. - Privacy for ALL Students!

Come Support Dallas Oregon on January 19, 6:00 p.m. - Privacy for ALL Students!
PRIVACY FOR ALL! Girls in Boy locker room? Boy in girls bathroom? The residents of Dallas need your support! It is CRITICAL that people show up! Stand with Dallas Oregon Parents and Guardians. Encourage your friends to attend Tuesday evening's meeting. Pass it along to your friends. TUESDAY, JANUARY 19, 2016, 6:00 p.m. *Arrive early, 5:15 - 5:30. DALLES CIVIC CENTER, 945 SE Jefferson St, Dallas OR 97338 (20 MILES WEST OF SALEM) Come support privacy for all students as the Dallas school board meets in a public work session with their legal counsel. The public will be allowed to submit written questions that will be answered at the end of the meeting. We need everyone who stands for the personal privacy, safety and respect of all students to come and be a supportive presence for our school board and administration as they face intimidation and bullying from meddling federal bureaucracy and other outside interests. School districts around the Oregon (and nation) are finding themselves being unduly pressured (and even mislead) into making sudden policy decisions about this bathroom/locker room/transgender issue. The privacy and safety of ALL students matters – and there are reasonable accommodations which can be made while at the same time protecting your children and grandchildren.

Oregon school district allowing male students to shower and urinate in girls locker room

Oregon school district allowing male students to shower and urinate in girls locker room
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Wednesday, September 9, 2015 OREGON SCHOOL DISTRICT ALLOWING MALE STUDENTS TO SHOWER AND URINATED IN GIRLS LOCKER ROOM. Parents’ Rights in Education would like to know how allowing a “transgendered boy” into a locker room full of young girls is considered “best practice” and how does this provide a safe and civil environment for these young girls? In Oregon, the Eugene Register Guard featured a May 23, 2015 article titled “New policy provides gender guidelines in Eugene schools”. This article refers to Eugene 4J School District’s April 10, 2015 22-page draft document which “gives guidance for when school officials should talk to parents…and [also] outlines best practices for accommodating transgender students in a number of ways, including accessible bathrooms, locker rooms, dress code, and bullying and harassment prevention.” The article went on to state that, “Students are not required to use a restroom or locker room that does not align with their gender identity, according to the document. Students can also participate in P.E. classes or intramural sports with students of the opposite sex, if it aligns with the students’ gender identification.” Eugene 4J School District’s policy Code JFG-AR Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Students was revised/reviewed on May 6, 2015.

CONDOMS TO SIXTH GRADERS OR NOT? Gervais, OR

CONDOMS TO SIXTH GRADERS OR NOT? Gervais, OR
They were going to get them. Then they weren't. Are they again? By Joe English, KATU News May 21, 2015. "It's difficult to tell if the Gervais School Board will shift gears again and decide to make condoms available not only to high schoolers in the little district near Salem, but to kids in sixth, seventh and eighth grades too. Last May the district decided giving condoms to kids as young as 11 or 12 may help curb the teen pregnancy problem in the district. Last summer, there was a change of plans. The district decided the middle schools kids would not get them. Now, there are some questions about whether the district will try it again."

Condoms to Sixth Graders is Back!

Condoms to Sixth Graders is Back!
Oregon’s rural Gervais School District located fifteen minutes from Oregon’s capitol city of Salem appears to be drafting, once again, a policy which would include distributing condoms to students as young as 6th grade. This despite last year’s June 2014 community outcry that caught state and national attention which eventually led to the Board making a July announcement that the policy would not be implemented. Why the turnabout now? The Gervais School District appears to be moving forward on their efforts to adopt their “Health Resource Room and Services, Sexual Health Policy” which would include condom distribution. This could happen as soon as their Thursday, May 21st 6:00 p.m. board meeting. *Go to "Resources" and scroll down to bottom of page to view the GERVIS School District (DRAFT) Health Resource Room and Service, Sexual Health Policy - p.1-3

Oregon Healthy Teens Survey: 'There are concerning questions'

Oregon Healthy Teens Survey: 'There are concerning questions'
"Middle school students will soon be answering some pretty intimate questions in a survey conducted by the Oregon Health Authority. The survey features questions like "Do you think of yourself as lesbian or gay?” or "During the past three months, how many people did you have sexual intercourse with?" Some parents say a survey that covers these topics is needed, while others are not thrilled. "We're very concerned about the trespassing on the hearts and minds of children,” said Lori Porter.

KOIN 6 Further Investigates Claim That Teen Sex Conference Keeps Kids Safe

KOIN 6 Further Investigates Claim That Teen Sex Conference Keeps Kids Safe
Oregon's Deputy Superintendent Rob Saxton DEFENDED the Oregon Department of Education's (ODE) involvement with the Adolescent Sexuality Conference (ASC). Shocking details of this Seaside conference were revealed in a November 18, 2014 KOIN 6 Investigative Report. Parents' Rights in Education wants to know how Deputy Superintendent Rob Saxton came to the conclusion that the ASC content (such as from Cory Silverberg) promotes "healthy sexuality". View a follow-up February 17, 2015 KOIN 6 Investigative Report where ODE Deputy Superintendent Rob Saxton claims Cory Silverberg's Adolescent Sexuality Conference workshop "Teledildonics" and the content Silverberg shared was intended to keep kids "safe and healthy". In this investigation, a young attendee shared that, “It [Cory Silverberg's workshop 'Teledildonics'] was nothing about warning people this is a bad idea or maybe not good for minors. It was all about how to do it, and there’s no confusing that fact.” Listen to the audio of Cory Silverberg's Teledildonics workshop and see for yourself!

Oregon Department of Education Defends Content Delivered at Seaside Sex Conference

Oregon Department of Education Defends Content Delivered at Seaside Sex Conference
Shortly after fifteen of the sixteen Oregon school districts (featured on KOIN 6 Nov. 18, 2014 investigative report) were reported to have announced that they would not be sending students to the Oregon Adolescent Sexuality (ASC) Conference, Deputy Superintendent of Public Instruction Rob Saxton wrote a letter to the superintendents of these districts. Saxton’s letter stated,"we have reviewed the content delivered by the presenters at the conference and believe their information was appropriate”. This, despite substantiated evidence of objectionable materials and content presented at the 2014 ASC conference. Most parents agree discussions of “blow jobs”, workshops on how to use sex toys over the internet or have sex with Avatars, and performing simulated sex acts with grossly inflated and lubricated condoms is not appropriate for minors. These ASC workshops were indiscriminately accessible to individuals of all age groups.

Oregon school district decides NOT to have teachers dispense condoms!

Oregon school district decides NOT to have teachers dispense condoms!
“An Oregon school district is halting plans to make condoms available to children in grades six through twelve as more research is conducted into the controversial distribution policy.”

Remember...

Your school board members are volunteers. They are busy people such as yourself. They care about kids. They have made a commitment to serve the residents of their district. They DO NOT work for the:

Oregon Department of Education (ODE) The Superintendent of Public Instruction (Governor Kitzhaber) The Oregon Educational Investment Board (OEIB) The Oregon School Board Association (OSBA) The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) Public Health Organizations or Private Corporation (ie:Kaiser Permanente)

Use respectful resolve to remind them that "there is no local control if parents rights are not honored/protected". Thank them for their service...but remind them that they work for YOU!

District chooses not to be Oregon's first to distribute condoms

Parental Rights Prevail! GERVAIS, Ore. – Unhappy parents have forced an Oregon school board to re-think its plan to begin handing out condoms to students – sixth-graders on up – when school starts up again this fall.
...but when parents and community members caught wind of the “condoms-upon-request” plan, they flooded a June board meeting to express their displeasure. “Some members of the public were offended that schools were stepping into the parents’ territory of addressing their children’s sexuality, according to minutes of the June board meeting,” StatesmanJournal.com reports. “Others said condoms were not an effective solution to the problem. A few said students may need mental health help, not condoms. Another said abstinence should be promoted, not condoms. Many said they wanted help finding an alternative solution. No one spoke in support of the decision.” On Wednesday (July 30, 2014), the Gervais school board voted to halt the plan until more research could be done.
