Controversial Issues in Area Schools
Most Ohio school districts have policies regarding the treatment of controversial issues.
Springboro, Oakwood, Kettering and Vandalia-Butler have practically identical controversial issue policies.
Other districts including Centerville, Dayton, Huber Heights and include different versions of a policy on Controversial Issues.
The Beavercreek district sets policies for dealing with controversial issues in a policy headed “Selection of Instruction Resources.”
None of the policies mention creationism
