2. Contact your local school boards and ask them to also sign this resolution. Obtain a copy with their signatures and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org OR mail to Protect Nebraska Children Coalition P.O. Box 1637 Kearney, NE 68848-1637.
3. We are still collecting letters from individual school boards that address the state board of education; however, we firmly believe having hundreds, even thousands, sign this resolution will send an undeniable message of unity and strength from our elected officials who represent us!
Find out when your next school board meeting is and plan to attend. Bring friends! Gather community members! Present information and your concerns that the Nebraska State Board of Education still intends to draft health sex education standards in the future (state health standards are unnecessary and are outside the legislative mandate to the Nebraska Department of Education). After the State Board of Education presented the explicit sexualized Draft #1, followed by a watered down version in Draft #2, dozens of emails secured through public records requests revealed a more complete picture – a process manipulated by a few radical activists to create scientifically and medically inaccurate standards which are out of line with the values of most Nebraskans. We cannot trust the Nebraska Department of Education under the leadership of the current board members.
Also, take the time to learn about other issues facing your local school districts, and don’t forget to thank your local school boards!
Attached are letters you can download from three different schools: Cozad, Maywood, and Thedford. What excellent sample letters you can present to your own board, asking them to make a similar, powerful stand against these standards! When they agree, please send us these letters! We will be collecting them and sharing them as well. Email us a copy at email@example.com OR mail to Protect Nebraska Children Coalition P.O. Box 1637 Kearney, NE 68848-1637.
