It has taken me years to finally decide to set up a blog about the Colville School system. This is because I am very busy and I know that a blog takes a tremendous amount of time. Now that I have committed, I will do my best to respond to everyone, especially if they have a question or a story they would like me to post. I will not respond to defamatory emails or any that are void of any useable information. Please understand that I may not be able to respond to emails in a timely manner.

  1. I am reading about this transgender policy in the Colville public school system and was wondering if you happen to have the bill number that this was supposedly approved of by the state of WA. in 2006 by the voters? I no longer have kids in school but I am totally against this and do hope you parents bombard the school board meeting in total disapproval of such actions… this feel good stuff and pc crap has got to stop… I can not imagine a young girl using the restroom and a boy walking in or a locker room…. I well remember in my teenage yr. us girls hate to have to take showers among just girls…God help us all… out world is going to hell in a hand basket and the basket has a hole in it….

    • I know of no bill that was approved by the voters, but you can ask the school district. I’m guessing they won’t get back to you. I have been told there is no law and will be posting proof shortly. All school policies and procedures that are required by law have the law listed at the bottom of the procedure. This procedure does not have any laws listed at the bottom, therefore, there is no law that requires this. It seems that the Colville School District has decided to enact this on their own, or with encouragement from other groups.

  2. Thanks for getting back to me.. will you be posting the jest of the meeting with the school board for all to see…??? I am going to be sending letters to our representatives to see if there is such a law regarding this or anything that gives the school the right to do this…

  3. I graduated from Colville High School so I am extremely upset to hear about this. Is someone going to hire an attorney to represent the community? It looks as though the board refuses to listen to the people (are they note voted in to do this?) and will continue to slowly wear everyone down. If the board has an attorney and the people do not, the board will not respect the community.
    Jay Sekulo has posted info about the “interpretation” of the federal law regarding transgender use of federally funded facilities. But it has nothing to do with schools and bathrooms., posted: “The guidelines also state that any student who has a need or desire for increased privacy should be provided access to an alternative restroom, such as a staff or health office restroom, but that no student should be required to use an alternative restroom just because they are transgender or gender nonconforming.

    Based on what is written above, there is no allowance for freedom of choice, all must conform! That is against all this nation stands for. But, all the girls can claim a right to more privacy and start using the teachers’ facilities. Or will they force young women to have to expose themselves to any boy who “feels like a woman” no matter where she goes? This is an assault on femininity. Does this mean that a male teacher who feels like he is a young woman has the freedom to use the girls’ locker room? Where will it stop?

    In the name of anti-discrimination, this has no business in our schools, or anywhere else. I am sure that you would agree that our public schools have a responsibility to provide a safe atmosphere. Parents have to right to know that their children are not threatened by sharing bathroom and changing facilities with “confused” people. Parents also have the right to remove their children from public school, if that is what is has to come to. I am contacting our Governor, Jay Inslee, our legislature and the Human Rights Commission to contest this proposal and I hope a lot of others will take the time to do this.

    Children have rights as well, and unwanted exposed to the opposite sex’s body parts is sexual abuse and the definition of indecent exposure. In this case, article
    RCW 9A.88.010 states indecent exposure as a crime punishable by jail time.

    In Washington State’s law definitions:
    “Indecent exposure. (1) A person is guilty of indecent exposure if he or she intentionally makes any open and obscene exposure of his or her person or the person of another knowing that such conduct is likely to cause reasonable affront or alarm.” In many states, exposure of a person’s genitals (undressing or urinating) in front of any person (in this case, in front of a minor) is a crime known as sexual offense and requires a person to register as a sex offender for the rest of their life.

    Many are concerned about the Human Rights Commission’s recent passage to let genderally confused people use the opposite sex’s bathroom. What kind of people would pass such a law, and then deem it illegal for anyone to question the offender? Another disturbing part is that if a person objects to the presence of the opposite sex, they are the ones that need to leave and use an alternative lavoratory facility. A clue that we are living in the days when evil is good, as referenced in Isaiah 5:20 “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!”
