Teacher Awarded $95,000

John AndersonAugust 31, 2022

A retired math teacher at Fort Riley Middle School has been awarded $95,000 from the school district after a settlement agreed that her First Amendment rights had been violated when she used a student’s dead name and was required to not tell their parents about their social transition. Pamela Ricard, a math teacher, had been reprimanded and suspended by Fort Riley Middle School officials for addressing a student by their legal and enrolled name instead of a chosen name. A dead name is a name assigned to a transgender person at birth – their “legal” name. Court records also note that the school had required Ricard to not tell the student’s parents about their social transition.
