The Anoka-Hennepin schools have policies requiring staff to remain "neutral" when it comes to discussions of religion and sexual orientation.
The sexual orientation neutrality policy has become controversial over the past year amid stories of a gay student who committed suicide after being bullied for being gay.
Below are the specific policies the Anoka-Hennepin school board will consider changing. The board on Monday night will weigh eliminating the neutrality policies on religion and sexual orientation and replacing them with a "controversial topics" policy.
It's worth noting there there are no specific changes being proposed to Anoka-Hennepin's anti-bullying policy, which is separate from the orientation and neutrality code.
What do you think of the proposals laid out by Anoka-Hennepin schools? Tell us.
