     Pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 23-24.6 of the General Laws of Rhode Island, as amended, and in accordance with the Administrative Procedures Act, Chapter 42-35 of the General Laws, the Rhode Island Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (RIDE) hereby gives public notice of proposed rulemaking on the Proposed Regulations Governing Protections for Students Rights to be Free from Discrimination on the Basis of Sex, Gender, Sexual Orientation, Gender Identify, or Gender Expression. 


    The proposed regulation requires school districts to adopt a policy by July 1, 2018, to ensure that transgender and gender non-conforming student are free from discrimination.  This regulation can also be viewed on the Secretary of State’s website.

     

    All interested parties are invited to provide written or oral comments concerning the proposed regulation from January 12, 2018 - February 16, 2018 to:

     

                RI Department of Elementary and Secondary Education

                c/o Angela Teixeira

                255 Westminster Street, Providence, RI 02903

                Or at angela.teixeira@ride.ri.gov

                Or at 222-8435

     

    In accordance with R.I. Gen. Laws § 42-35-2.8, an oral hearing will be granted if requested by twenty-five (25) persons, by an agency or by an association having at least twenty-five (25) members. A request for an oral hearing must be made within thirty (30) days of this notice.

     

    In the development of the proposed regulation consideration was given to: (1) alternative approaches; (2) overlap or duplication with other statutory and regulatory provisions; and (3) significant economic impact on small business. No alternative approach, duplication, or overlap was identified based upon available information.

     

    The costs of the regulation are minimal when balanced against the need to ensure that gender non-conforming and transgendered individual rights are protected in schools.

     

    For full regulatory analysis, supporting documentation, or a copy of the regulation, please feel free to contact me.

     

    Thank you,

     

    Angela

    Each year the Rhode Island Association of School Principals selects one member as our Secondary Principal of the Year.  Therefore, at this time, we ask that you give consideration to nominating someone who exemplifies the characteristics of an outstanding secondary principal; someone who unselfishly works to build and maintain a school culture that promotes high student achievement. 

    All nominees must meet the following criteria:

    RIASP member for three (3) years 

    Be a practicing RI Middle School or High School Principal

    Principal for three (3) or more complete years consecutively in one school 

    Letters of nomination may be emailed to Sherry at sarliapuhacz@riasp.org.  The one to two page letter of nomination should reference the candidates leadership capacity, and at least one particular accomplishment.  

    Once nominated, we (RIASP) will contact your nominee and forward the application packet to them.  The application packet is quite comprehensive, so it is advantageous to nominate a candidate in timely fashion.  

    A RIASP selection committee will review all completed nomination packets.  At least two (2) finalists shall then be identified.  For validation purposes, the selection committee will then conduct school visits, and shall ultimately select the 2018 Rhode Island Secondary Principal of the Year. 

    Finally, if you are aware of an outstanding Secondary Principal, please do not hesitate to nominate them.  The sooner the better.  The deadline for submitting nominations is Friday,     January 12, 2018.  Again, send letters of nomination to Sherry at sarliapuhacz@riasp.org.  

    Yours truly,
