Hanover Meeting Recap

Hanover School leaders take a bold stance, defying requests for students to use the bathrooms that they identify with. But the district will make some minor changes to its policy in favor of transgender students.

When it comes to which bathroom a student should use, the school board was at odds.

The majority won and it only took one vote for the district to decide to keep things the way they are.

Hanover is allowing for changes involving student records. If a parent and student request that a teacher refer to a child by a different name or gender, then the school will do that. The same applies to official documents relating to that child.

RPS Rezoning

Richmond Public Schools are moving forward with plans to rezone River City Middle School, which had just opened last year.

RPS says the school is already at capacity and will become overcrowded in the upcoming years. Now the school district is looking to move some students to Boushall and Lucille Brown.

Winners of the Richmond Marathon will likely not receive their medals on time.

The Richmond Marathon says they were told the medals are still waiting to be offloaded in Long Beach, California, so they may not arrive in time.

If the medals do not arrive, it will more than likely be after race day.
