The School District of Lee County is working toward finalizing next school year’s student code of conduct for the classroom.

A poster sparked outrage this spring semester among parents. It outlined LGBTQ policies within the District.

During Lee County School Boards’s meeting Tuesday District staff recommended board members remove the controversial bathroom posters from the code of conduct.

Board members and the board attorney continue to address the fact the District must still adhere to federal and state anti-discrimination laws.

In order to do that, District staff is writing a guidebook that will include how to handle LGBTQ rights and address a number of anti-bullying and anti-discrimination policies.

It’s clear the poster struck a nerve for lots of people in the community.
