Hair Raising Opportunity:

Riverside Freshman MaKayla "KK" Jenkins and her family have had a tough battle this year.  KK has been battling osteosarcoma (bone cancer).  She has undergone multiple chemo treatments, as well as several trips to Houston, Texas, where she underwent an extensive surgery.  Throughout this journey she has remained very brave and even finished her basketball cheer season in-between treatments.  

Riverside High School Social Studies Teacher, Mr. Tim McGill, would like to ask for your help raising money to assist their family with this battle.  Mr. McGill has been letting his hair grow since we were struck by the pandemic last Spring.  He will be letting the students of Riverside and whoever wishes to participate decide how he should cut his long flowing locks.  You will have the opportunity to vote for one of 4 hairstyles, which he will wear for one week to school (including all public places, track meets, church, etc...)  The most money given to a specific hairstyle wins!  Money can be given by the students and staff during school lunch or in the school office.  Anyone outside of the school building may give at the GoFundMe account link below or by visiting the school's website at www.riverside.k12.oh.us or the school's Facebook page.

On May 14th, the winning style will be announced and the haircut will be Live Streamed on the school FB page.  Here is a picture of our long haired Mr. McGill, along with the voting options.  If you give via GoFundMe, make sure to leave your vote in the comments of your donation.

Thank you in advance for your help.  https://gofund.me/ed189697

Long haired, Mr. Tim McGill 

Option #1 - The Mullet with mustache

Nondiscrimination and Access to Equal Educational Opportunity
Any form of discrimination or harassment can be devastating to an individual's academic progress, social relationship and/or personal sense of self-worth. As such, the Board of Education does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex (including sexual orientation or transgender identity), disability, age (except as authorized by law), religion, military status, ancestry, or genetic information (collectively, "Protected Classes") in its educational programs or activities.
The Board also does not discriminate on the basis of Protected Classes in its employment policies and practices as they relate to students, and does not tolerate harassment of any kind.

Equal educational opportunities shall be available to all students, without regard to the Protected Classes, age (unless age is a factor necessary to the normal operation or the achievement of any legitimate objective of the program/activity), place of residence within the boundaries of the District, or social or economic background, to learn through the curriculum offered in this District. Educational programs shall be designed to meet the varying needs of all students.

Policy Information
Policy 3120 states that the public has a right or option to request information on certified staff's qualifications for teaching. You can read the policy on this link.
