Superintendent Massey Affirms Restrooms Not an Issue in BISD
We are certainly disappointed with President Obama's announcement regarding school restrooms. We strongly disagree and prefer local control of our own issues. We have seven Board of Trustees elected by the people, who very effectively govern our school district. Student restroom use is not an issue in Brazosport ISD, nor do we foresee it to be. Brazosport ISD does not have a specific policy addressing bathroom use by transgender students. We have nondiscrimination policies in place for all students, and, as with all requests for modification or accommodation, we make case-by-case decisions for each student based upon the situation. It is always our intent to treat each of our students with dignity and respect. Our focus will continue to be providing a quality education and outstanding learning experiences for our students with dedicated and committed teachers. We know the confidence and trust parents place in our hands each day with their children. It is a responsibility we take very seriously, and will never allow Washington D.C. to betray that trust.
