Judge Halts Chino School District Parental Notification Policy

A California judge has halted a school district policy that requires parents be notified if their children change their gender identification or pronouns at school. A San Bernardino County judge issued the ruling Wednesday. California Attorney General Rob Bonta had sued Chino Valley Unified School District over its newly adopted parental notification policy. It’s one of several districts in Southern California considering similar policies as LGBTQ+ rights become the latest cultural flashpoint in schools across the country. Bonta says the district’s policy violates students’ civil rights. Chino Valley contends the policy seeks to involve parents so they can provide support. Anderson High School District’s board has approved a similar policy.
