The American Civil Liberties Union of Minnesota sent a letter to the Becker Public Schools Board and superintendent Friday, expressing "serious legal and public policy concerns" about a proposed policy.
"The Board’s goal of ensuring that school officials treat all students fairly and equitably is laudable; however, as currently drafted, proposed Policy 471 would undermine that goal and it would significantly interfere with the First Amendment rights of students. We respectfully urge you to reject the proposed policy."
ACLU-MN filed a request under the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act for any information related to the drafting and consideration of the policy.
