Beaverton School District, Beaverton School District unanimously approved changes to its personnel policies after being wrongly accused of striking a student teaching a class last falls.

The Seth Stambaugh secluded area of a class of fourth year at Sexton Mountain Elementary after a conversation he had with a student. One boy asked if he was married and Stambaugh told the boy he could not marry because he was gay and was illegal.

Parents complained and secluded area Stambaugh because they considered it an inappropriate conversation.

Stambaugh was reinstated after he and his lawyer threatened the district with a lawsuit for discrimination.

Oregon Basic Law, an advocacy group, applauded the decision to return to class and Stambaugh has worked with the district to ensure it is open, inclusive and fair place to work and learn.

The group helped new boat wording and phrasing of several policies that refer to equal rights for all employees and students.

Two sentences were added to several sections are “gender identity”, which refers to the feeling of a person to be male or female and may not match their gender at birth.

The other sentence is “gender expression”, which refers to how a person expresses their gender identity to others, including their clothing, grooming, manners and behavior.
