Bend-La Pine Schools to Lodge Students on Field Trips According to Gender Identity
“A parent’s only recourse is to remove their child from the activity”

On January 10, the Bend-LaPine School District, under the direction of Dr. Steve Cook, passed an Administrative Regulation regarding lodging arrangements for overnight field trips basing placement on gender identity.

Gender balance of staff / chaperones is highly encouraged on all excursions. For an overnight trip or camp, Bend-La Pine Schools shall assure that staff, chaperones and students are assigned to rooms or cabins that correspond to their gender identity. Staff shall determine placement of students, staff and chaperones based on the need for appropriate supervision and shall take into consideration the safety, security and wellbeing of all gender-conforming and nonconforming persons.

Supervisors(s) must have knowledge that students will not be permitted to leave the field trip group during the trip unless they are released to their parent/guardian.

One parent, who declined to be identified, summarized the policy as "students will be placed in cabins on overnight field trips (outdoor school etc.) according to their gender identity. This essentially means biological girls and boys will be "assigned" into cabins with members of the opposite sex and vice versa and a parent's only recourse as I understand it, is to remove their child from the activity. These assessments and placements will be made by staff (not parents)."
