There is a growing number of people in the Rapid City area that are concerned with the addition of gender identity into the policies of Western Dakota Tech. On September 17 the Rapid City School Board voted 4-3 to add gender identity into the list of classes mentioned in policy #2005. Although the motive was understandable, the unintended consequences could be harmful.
A number of local Church-based Culture Impact Teams are concerned about the passage of this policy, and are committed to respectfully asking for the policy to be changed back. If you are interested in making your voice heard on this issue, you can still sign the petition we created and the public is always welcome to attend the school board meetings. Click here for the School Board Schedule, attend any or all of them! We are not asking for a large number of presenters at each meeting, but rather a large group of people, with one person simply expressing the concern of the group.
