Judge To Carroll ISD: LGBT Plan “Must Cease”
Today, a Tarrant County, Texas judge granted an emergency order ruling that Carroll ISD likely violated the Texas Open Meetings Act (TOMA) by assembling a quorum and conducting secret deliberations contrary to TOMA notice provisions to advance the controversial and divisive Cultural Competence Action Plan (CCAP) which promotes radical LGBT agendas and policies.
Texas Values expressed concern about the actions of Carroll ISD’s board starting in July of this year regarding CCAP. Texas Values team members presented testimony back in August on how the plan threatened the religious liberty of students who hold Christian values, and filed an open records request for information on board activities. Today’s order requires the school board to cease from taking any further administrative action on CCAP.
“Carroll ISD put politics above education and they got caught with their hand in the cookie jar. This court order just confirms the lack of transparency by Carroll ISD that has broken the trust of so many parents,” said Jonathan Covey, Director of Policy at Texas Values.
