Doctrinal issues which are not addressed in the Doctrinal and Human Sexuality statements are considered secondary doctrines. School positions are not normally taken on these issues, though the school reserves the right to take a position where it is deemed appropriate by the school. Students are encouraged to think about secondary issues through the lens of the primary doctrines of the Christian faith. Hence, classroom discussion on any of these secondary issues should be on an informative, non-partisan basis.
Teachers, parents and students are instructed to be careful not to have discussions in the classroom about these issues in a manner which would cause offense to students or their parents. If it is deemed appropriate by a teacher to discuss one of these issues in the classroom (teachers are free to limit or not allow discussion on these issues), the teacher is encouraged to allow discussion about and/or to present all sides of the issue. Teachers are also asked to encourage their students to follow-up on any questions they may have on a secondary doctrinal issue with their parents and pastor of their church. Parents with concerns about the way any secondary issues may have been handled in the classroom should address their concerns directly using the principle of conflict resolution.
