In a letter to school board, the school’s former principal, Angela M. Smith, says the program was moved because it was deemed a “no-go area” and “could not be sustained”.
The school’s principal, however, is not satisfied, and says the school was forced to abandon its old curriculum in order to accommodate a new one.
Smith wrote that the move is “not only an inappropriate decision, but also deeply insulting and unfair”.
Smith also says she is “deeply concerned” that the new curriculum was not given “due consideration” in the school board’s decision to move to a new, “girl-power” program.
“The girls’ club is a new initiative at our school,” she wrote.
“We will continue to provide all girls with a safe space to meet each other and be themselves, as we have done since our inception.”
Smith said the school will continue “to educate and help girls through their education and careers”.
School board spokesperson Karen Haggart said the move was done “to allow the school to continue providing the best education for our students and families”.
“It’s been a tough year for our school and we are still working through some of the more difficult decisions,” she said.
The school has had an interim female-only club since 2013, when a former student was killed at the school.
The club is based at a “safe space”, and Smith said “girls and women can still feel safe in the club”.
But the move comes amid a backlash against the school after it announced that a new female-focused club will be held at the same time as the girls’ clubs.
Smith said that she was told to move the school “out of a safe-space and into a girls-only space”.
The move is one of the latest in a string of high-profile school decisions that have angered parents and community members.
The girls’ football team has announced it will not play in a women’s league in the new year, citing safety concerns.
The principal is also facing criticism over a letter she sent to parents last year that included the line “You know, my kids will never know about the girls-power club unless it’s the same one we used in the past”.
The letter was written in response to a complaint from a parent who said she had received an email from the school that said she could not join the new girls’ league because the school would not allow women to wear makeup.
School board chair Karen Hafford said the letter was “outrageous and inappropriate”.
The board has also faced backlash for announcing plans to move its women’s soccer team to a women-only facility, after the school announced plans to change its football team’s name to the “girls’ club”.
The football team will now play at a different school in the next school year.
Hafforord also said the board’s new gender-neutral bathrooms and changing rooms were “a good start”, but said “there is more to come”.
The boys’ basketball team, which has been in the women’s program since 2013 and is currently playing in the tournament, is facing a similar backlash, after it was announced it would move to its own gender-nonconforming facility.
“They just made the announcement,” said one parent.
“What they don’t realize is that they are only getting one step closer to gender-inclusive facilities for girls and boys, and we want to make sure they are well equipped to do so,” the parent said.
In a statement, the boys’ soccer team said the team was not forced to relocate, but was moved to a facility with “similar facilities for women and men”.
“The boys will continue playing in their own gender inclusive facilities,” the statement read.
“As they continue to do this, they will be supported in their pursuit of the next level of success.”
The girls basketball team has been allowed to continue playing.
Haggard said the decision to leave the school-girls club was “made in good faith”.
“This was not the right move for our girls and families,” she added.
We know that this decision has impacted our families and students and we appreciate the trust and support we have had from them. “
It was also a difficult choice to make for our parent.
The letter to parents also includes a list of demands, including an end to harassment and abuse of the school, an end “to the exclusion of students with disabilities” and a move “to a new facility with similar facilities for students with all disabilities”. “
To everyone who has voiced concerns, we will continue our work to ensure our schools remain gender inclusive.”
