MISHAWAKA, Ind. — REAL News Michiana has discovered the Penn Harris Madison school district made major changes to its policies to normalize the gender transition of children. It turns out, all of it was done in secret, without the knowledge or input of parents or citizens.

In the newly approved PHM handbooks for parents and students at Penn High School, policies now allow students to change their names and pronouns without parental consent. Under General Information about enrolling in the school, the handbook now states the following:

“Gender pronoun/name changes/requests should be directed to the school’s administration or counseling center. Such inquiries can be initiated by the student and/or family.”

The above verbiage did not exist in the 2021-2022 handbook.

Similar language exists in the new handbooks for children k-8. However, the policy directs parents to make the pronoun and gender decisions.

“If a student prefers to be called by a different name/pronoun than is listed on the birth certificate, the child’s parent is asked to contact the school administration to request the change.”

Once again, that verbiage did not exist in the 2021-2022 handbook.

It turns out, all of this was approved before the public was allowed to see the new handbook. The PHM Board of School Trustees voted on their first draft reading of the updated handbook on March 28th. The updated handbook and the changes being made were not attached or provided to the public.

The second reading, and subsequent approval, of the updated handbook was voted on at the April 25th meeting. Once again, the updated handbook and the changes being made were not attached or provided to the public. The final draft, that had already been approved, was not made public until April 29th, a full 4 days after it had already been approved by the board.

According to board meeting minutes from March, there were only “small modifications being presented.” Those modifications were made by a “committee of administrators,” who are not named.
