March 2021 – On December 2, a Tarrant County, Texas, judge granted an emergency order requiring the board of the Carroll Independent School District (ISD) to cease from taking any further administrative action on a controversial and divisive policy called the Cultural Competence Action Plan (CCAP).
CCAP promotes radical LGBTQ agendas and policies. The judge ruled that the Carroll ISD likely violated the Texas Open Meetings Act (TOMA) by conducting secret deliberations contrary to TOMA in order to advance the radical program.
Texas Values, an organization that promotes the values of faith, family, and freedom, voiced concern as far back as July 2020 that CCAP threatened the religious liberty of students who adhere to Christian values.
Jonathan Covey, director of policy at Texas Values, stated, “Carroll ISD put politics above education, and they got caught with their hand in the cookie jar. This court order just confirms the lack of transparency by Carroll ISD that has broken the trust of so many parents.”
