Anti-Discrimination Program Follows "Gay-Straight" Battle

Boyd County School District officials are working on an anti-discrimination training program mandated by a court settlement.

Assistant Superintendent Dawn Tackett, who is developing the program, told school board members on Monday that a recent preview of the training was a good learning experience.

At the May 24 session, the board and 24 parents viewed and discussed a sample training video.

Afterward, Tackett was able to compile responses to a questionnaire circulated to parents.

The school board agreed to give the training as part of a settlement after the Gay-Straight Alliance filed a lawsuit against the district. The suit accused the district of violating the constitutional rights of members of the group by denying them the privilege to meet at the Boyd County High School.
