Parents and Taxpayers of Columbia County, GA hereby sign this petition showing their support for the Columbia County Board of Education to adopt the following Resolution at the Board Meeting taking place on Tuesday, December 14th, 2021:

 

RESOLUTION TO RE-FOCUS ON ACADEMIC EDUCATION IN COLUMBIA COUNTY, GA SCHOOLS  

WHEREAS, Columbia County parents and taxpayers have a vested, united interest in providing all children with a high quality, nonpartisan, academically focused education; and  

WHEREAS, recent events and educational trends have distracted from this unifying community commitment and politicized the educational environment; and  

WHEREAS, the Columbia County Board of Education finds that it is in the best interests of students, parents, and taxpayers to enact policies that seek to remove these barriers to education; and  

WHEREAS, the Columbia County Board of Education recognizes that the current laws of the State of Georgia do not fully address these concerns  

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the Columbia County Board of Education will formally endorse the Georgia State Board of Education Resolution denouncing Critical Race Theory concepts in education dated June 3, 2021 and ensure all district materials are aligned to the tenets within it; and  

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Columbia County Board of Education will extend the application of Georgia obscenity laws regarding minors as outlined in OCGA 16-12-100, OCGA 16-12-100.1, OCGA 16-12-100.2, and OCGA § 16-12-100.3 to include all content in schools, including media centers; and  

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Columbia County Board of Education will extend the application of parental informed consent for sexual education programs as stated in OCGA § 20-2-143 and Georgia Board of Education Rule 160-4-2-.12 to include all sexual materials and discussions provided and/or facilitated by school faculty and/or administrators; and  

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Columbia County Board of Education will uphold provisions of OCGA § 19-7-2 requiring parents to provide for the maintenance, protection, and education of his or her child, to include the medical decisions parents find best for fulfilling their legal obligations put forth by this statute; and  

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Columbia County Board of Education will ensure all employees and faculty are held accountable to these standards in accordance with established district disciplinary procedures.
