HCPS Special Announcement

On Tuesday, October 11, 2022, information was released in our community and reported on by the local newspaper. Harford County Public Schools (HCPS) is sharing all documentation surrounding the situation, so our community has access to all documents referenced.

Please read all the information and understand that HCPS has and will continue to support ALL students EVERY day. The Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment gives students equal educational opportunities no matter what their race, ethnic background, religion, or sex, or whether they are rich or poor, citizen or non-citizen. In addition, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) prohibits sex discrimination, including pregnancy, sexual orientation, and gender identity in education programs and activities. If you or your student have a concern, please speak directly with an administrator at your school. We cannot always give everyone what they want, but we can make every effort to find a solution and offer accommodations to those who ask. Our mission is to honor the diversity of our students and staff in a safe and caring environment.
 
To protect the privacy of the students involved, information like the school’s name, grade level, and pronouns have been redacted from the letters


Sincerely,

Rachel Gauthier
President, Board of Education of Harford County

Sean Bulson, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
