Groups clash over FCPS gender policy outside school board meeting

September 14, 2023

Hundreds of people gathered outside the Frederick County Board of Education meeting on Wednesday during a pair of passionate — and at times tense — demonstrations related to the district’s gender identity policies. Local groups opposing the board’s Policy 443 — which, among other things, directs school employees to use students’ preferred names and pronouns, and says school employees will keep a student’s gender identity private, not disclosing it to the student’s parents or guardians, unless the child consents to sharing it — advertised the event as a “rally for parents’ rights.”
