The Regina Public Schools board of trustees voted against a motion to "reaffirm the status quo" around pride in schools.
In a 4-3 vote, trustees decided schools will reserve the right to display Pride events as they desire, but are not obligated to partake.
It was decided the matter would be put forward to Administration to be looked at by a committee who will determine proper guidelines.
Board of Education Trustee Aleana Young put forward a motion recognizing and supporting Pride celebrations. The motion followed a discussions held in June, when a group of parents shared concerns about “the implementation of Pride Day and the increased promotion of LGBTQ ideal within the public schools.”
