Non-Partisan Group Questions Process Allowing Gender-Neutral Bathrooms at Cape Elizabeth High School
In the latest issue of the Cape Elizabeth town newspaper, the Cape Courier, a non-partisan organization called the Cape Neighbors Alliance paid for an ad intended to promote transparency and community awareness of major policies.
The ad explains why the group was started, and then goes on to describe that in April, several concerned parents brought to their attention a message sent to students by Cape Elizabeth High School. The message informed CEHS students upon their return from spring break that going forward, “Everyone will be able to use either second floor restroom regardless of gender or gender identity.”
While the alliance takes no stance regarding gender issues, they understandably take issue with the process that led to such a decision without any community input. The group goes on to explain that they are not aware of any notification sent to parents, but instead, only the notice to students.

Good for the Cape Neighbors Alliance for promoting community input and transparency.
