On Friday, May 13, 2016, the US Departments of Education and Justice released a Joint Guidance to help schools ensure the civil rights of transgender students. This communication from the federal government has created a great deal of controversy across the United States, in Indiana, and right here in our own district.
NWCS has asked our school attorney to guide us in the matter. Our attorney is reviewing the federal government's guidance to determine its legality and our ability to comply.
NWCS places student safety as the top priority at all times. NWCS will continue to take every reasonable action to protect the safety, privacy, and rights of all students at all times.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call the NWCS Superintendent, Scott Mills, at 260-622-4125.
