The Geary County Schools Board of Education voted to rescind its Communication with Parents policy that directed staff to refrain from using students’ preferred names and pronouns when speaking to their parents.

In the lawsuit case of Fort Riley Middle School math teacher Pamela Ricard v. USD 475 Geary County Schools, the U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas granted a portion of a preliminary injunction May 9 that while the case proceeds, Ricard may address students with their preferred name when communicating with the students’ parents.
