Krista Threefoot started this petition to Howard County Board of Education

Recently, a former Board of Education Candidate, who has also served as chairperson for the HCPSS Operating Budget Review Committee and a representative for the Community Advisory Committee, created a Change.org petition for the Howard County Board of Education to "protect children from LGBTQ indoctrination" in our schools. 

Although the petition has since been removed, we are deeply concerned by its inflammatory language -- and even more concerned that this language came from someone who has held positions of power within HCPSS community organizations.

We are asking the members of the Board of Education to issue a statement to the full school community that reaffirms our school system's unequivocal commitment to creating a safe, inclusive, and supportive environment for all our LGBTQ+ students, families, and staff.

We also ask that you include an overview of the HCPSS policies that protect our LGBTQ+ community, so that they understand their rights and protections within HCPSS. 

Thank you!
