Auburn schools: District health proposal involves gender identification K-12

I would like to make the public aware of upcoming school community meetings to make parents aware of proposed gender identification education starting as early as kindergarten.

The Auburn School District had previous meetings last June to receive input on whether gender identity should be included in the curriculum. However, the communication methods did not reach the masses. The people that did attend and left their email addresses for further contact have not received any further communication. They also requested that future meetings should be used to inform the public through the Auburn Reporter, and although promised, the administration failed to do so this time around.

This is an important issue for the community. As taxpayers, it involves our children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews and neighbors. I invite you to find the informational flyer on the school website,

The upcoming meetings are:

• Tuesday, Sept. 18, 6:30-7:30pm at Auburn Riverside High School, 501 Oravetz Road

• Thursday, Sept. 20, 6:30-7:30pm at Auburn High School, 711 E. Main St.

All will be in the main commons of the high school

If you are unable to make any of the meetings and still want to communicate your views, please let your school board members know at the following email addresses: Ray Vefik:; Robyn Mulenga:; Laurie Bishop:; and Ryan Van Quill:
