Regulations Governing Local School Boards and School Divisions (8 VAC 20-720)
 

I support amendments to the regulations. I am strongly against the use of sensititive or controversial instructional material in the classroom.  I support advanced parential notification of sensitive material and the identification of books containing sensitive material alternative books. In addition I support giving students an opt out option, who do not want to be present in the classroom where discussions on sensitive topics may take place.
