Good news out of Oregon.
Kudos to these young women for ensuring future LGBT students won't have to go through some of the crap they did.

Queer students endured harassment and harsh punishments at Oregon public school

NORTH BEND, Ore. – The American Civil Liberties Union Foundation of Oregon announced today that settlements had been reached on behalf of current and former North Bend High School students Liv Funk and Hailey Smith, who suffered anti-LGBTQ harassment and discrimination from both students and staff. The settlements remove Principal Bill Lucero from his job and require that the school district work with the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation of Oregon (ACLU of Oregon) to develop policies and training to prevent future discrimination. The district will remain under Oregon Department of Education supervision for five years.

NORTH BEND — The American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon reached two settlements on Monday with the North Bend School District. ... The settlements remove high school Principal Bill Lucero, according to a press release from the ACLU of Oregon. ... However, the North Bend School District told The World on Tuesday morning that Lucero is simply being "reassigned."

"We will restructure the admin team after schools out for the 2018/2019 school year," wrote Superintendent Bill Yester in an email to The World. ... As for where Lucero is being reassigned or who the new high school principal is, Yester said, "We can not answer those questions at this time."

The ACLU settlements also required the district to “ask North Bend Police Department to remove the school resource officer or provide a new officer for the role,” the release stated.

The SRO, Jason Griggs, had told one of the two students that “she was going to hell for being gay” after she reported an anti-LGBTQ assault, where another student injured her hand with a skateboard, which The World previously reported.
