***With a House Government Oversight Committee hearing coming up on Tuesday regarding the Black Lives Matter At School Week of Action hosted by the Ames district, we wanted to refresh everyone on what happened.***
The Ames Community School District is preparing for its Black Lives Matter Week of Action at School on Feb. 1-5.
According to documents on the website, Wednesday’s activities will include queer affirming, trans-affirming and collective value lessons.
Students preschool-second grade will be able to define words “transgender” and “nonbinary” and give examples of ways to support people of all gender identities.
Students in kindergarten-second grade will use creative, dramatic expression to consider not only the roots of gender stereotypes but also their consequences and strategies for counteracting them.
