* Implementation Motion, from Board meeting minutes
It appears that the Board has not yet considered any motion that references the learning resource known as SOGI 123.


2016 July 25 – THE BC Human Rights Code is modified with the addition of “gender identity or expression”.

2017 July 1 – Ministry of Education policy delegates approval of Learning Resources to local Boards of Education.
Quoting from the Ministry’s policy on learning resources,
“The Ministry of Education no longer conducts evaluation processes to recommend learning resources. This responsibility now rests with boards. Board policies and procedures should include a process for ensuring the list of recommended learning resources is up to date and aligned with changes in curriculum. This would include adding and removing resources from the list.”

2018 – Since no formal vote has been taken by the Qualicum Board of Education meeting it appears the SOGI 123 Learning Resource has been neither approved nor disapproved for use in the Qualicum school district.


** Classroom Motion
THAT the Qualicum Board of Education directs the Superintendent to continue to promote a respectful educational environment for all students, by removing the SOGI 123 learning resource from classroom instructional time.
