The Respectful Learning Environment Curriculum policy was endorsed by Anoka-Hennepin teachers' union on Monday, according to the Star Tribune.
The "Respectful Learning Environment" policy was introduced on Jan. 23, Pioneer Press reported. It is the second draft to be reviewed by a school board.
A first draft, the "Controversial Topics Curriculum Policy," fell through after its proposal in December, according to the Star Tribune. The latest policy was introduced in replacement of the district's current Sexual Orientation Curriculum Policy.
"Ultimately we believe this (proposed) policy reflects what works for students and we definitely can work with that," said Union President Julie Blaha, as reported by Pioneer Press.
According to the Star Tribune, teachers have criticized the existing policy for its lack of clarity on how to interact with gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender students.
The new policy is subjected a school board voting next Monday.
