At an October 2, 2020 Zoom meeting of schools’ transportation officials and employees, a question was asked about political messaging being worn while working.
The meeting moderator responded that political, alcohol, tobacco, Confederate, and drug related messages were not permissible when on-duty. He later clarified that Black Lives Matter (BLM) messages were deemed appropriate by Dr. Haas, because BLM was considered a “humanitarian” organization.
Such viewpoint discrimination has landed Albemarle County Schools in hot water previously. Haas’ throw-caution-to-the-wind approach may return the division to the dreaded legal swamp.
