Last week we told you about students in Waukee being asked for preferred pronouns and if they wanted that information shared with parents. We also know that the Linn-Mar School District is being sued over its gender plans with students and the fact the district will hide that information from parents.

Some Johnston School District students who participate in a program called Extended Learning Program (ELP) have also beek asked for preferred pronouns and then what name and pronouns the teacher should use when talking with parents.

Both questions were required on a class survey, which was given to eighth and ninth-grade students.

ELP is a program for “gifted students,” according to the Johnston website.
