Public Comment at KSB Special Meeting

Tuesday, February 20, 2024 at 9:00 - 9:30 AM
Kennewick School District Administration Center, 1000 W 4th Ave., Kennewick

The Kennewick School Board is contemplating formal opposition to Legislative bills, ESB 5462 and ESHB 2331. These bills require the state Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction to revise our educational standards to include the histories, contributions, and perspectives of LGBTQ people and they bar local districts from not using materials related to or including the study of the role and contributions of individuals or groups that are part of a protected class as established in public school nondiscrimination provisions.

Essentially they are considering refusing to use materials that expand diverse and inclusive education in the school district.

We invite those who wish to comment on this critical issue or just to show support for diversity education to attend this meeting.
