With regard to (1) the biological processes of human reproduction in a science class or unit, or (2) family composition/what makes a family, we ask for notice and the opportunity for prior review to determine whether we will grant or withhold consent. We expect all school officials to treat our child, and all children opted out of any lesson, with dignity and respect. If the requests in this letter are not honored, or if our child experiences discrimination or any other mistreatment, we will pursue any and all legal and equitable remedies available to us through state, federal, and constitutional law.*
