On June 1st, a new issue of the Delaware Registrar of Regulations will come out. Included in this will be a revision to Regulation 225. Apparently the changes will address the issue of parental involvement which caused a substantial amount of resistance to the regulation when it came out last fall.
When the revision comes out tomorrow, the public will have 30 days to give public comment on the regulation.
The original Regulation 225 limited the ability of schools to let parents know about issues when a transgender student sought help from the school. The Delaware Department of Education said they put this in there so as not to cause an issue where students could be in danger due to the school notifying the parent.
Some parents in Delaware had issues with the entire regulation and voiced their discontent. I don’t think this regulation will ever make everyone happy but it sounds like the Delaware DOE did make changes. We will find out tomorrow what they are.
