Vote on Parental rights in Palm Beach public schools held by public school leaders

A vote Wednesday by the Palm Beach County School Board will attempt to align policy with the newly passed and controversial “Parental Rights In Education” law, WPTV reports.

The policy was drafted to ban classroom instruction on sexual orientation or gender identity from kindergarten through third grade and be “age-appropriate and developmentally appropriate” for children in grades four and above.

This policy also requires schools to give well-being or health screening forms to the parents of children in kindergarten through third grade.

Permission must be given by the parents before the screening is administered.

Parents have the ability to decline services.
